Pay and conditions for non-teaching staff
The vast majority of non-teaching staff in the education sector are employed by the Education Authority (with the exception of staff in Voluntary Grammar and Grant Maintained Integrated schools who are employed by the individual schools’ Board of Governors).
Decisions on pay and terms and conditions for non-teaching staff are considered by the Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) for the Education Authority which is made up of both management and union representatives. Agreements are issued via JNC Circulars which can be found at:
Agreements generally ensure continued parity with the National Joint Council (NJC) terms and conditions of service to ensure staff are not disadvantaged compared to mainland GB colleagues.
