Benchmarking staff salaries
How should schools benchmark staff salaries? We outline advice on benchmarking salaries from the unions ASCL and NAHT, the National Association of School Business Management, and one of our associate education experts. We also link to further articles from The Key on benchmarking.
A school leader asked us if there is any guidance on benchmarking the salary for a leadership post in order to establish the market rate, and whether to take into account the salary of similar roles within the school and/or the salary of the same post in other schools. The role is currently paid less than similar roles within the school.
We contacted two unions, the National Association of School Business Management (NASBM) and one of our associate education experts, and have set out their advice below.
Benchmarking within the school
