Teachers’ Pension Scheme: the Impact on Independent Schools

16.30 - 18.00 | Cheltenham

Following the recent actuarial valuation of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme, from September 2019 independent schools will have to fund significantly higher contributions. Our roundtable (specifically for independent schools) will discuss the following areas:

  • What has driven the significantly higher contributions required from September 2019?
  • What choices do independent schools have regarding their participation in the scheme?
  • How does the Teachers’ Pension Scheme compare with other possible pension arrangements?
  • A practical guide to setting up a new Defined Contribution (DC) scheme, including scheme design and member communications.

The seminar will be hosted by Paul Hamilton, Partner and Head of Higher Education, Martin Willis, Associate and Chartered Financial Planner at Barnett Waddingham and Michael Hayles, Partner at Burges Salmon.

Refreshments will be served from 16.30 and the roundtable will begin at 17.00, it is expected to last for around an hour, including time for questions.
