This section hosts public briefings and documents which UCEA has issued to a wide set of stakeholders, such as to parliamentarians.
Pay in higher education
Independent calculations, commissioned by UCEA, looking at the real-terms change in the value of the New JNCHES pay spine show that all pay spine points have kept pace with CPIH inflation since 2013-14. The report also shows that the lowest-paid staff have seen an increase of 6% ahead of inflation since 2013-14. This paper was revised on 11 October 2019 to incorporate the actual inflation figures for August 2019 as previously forecasts had been used.
