HC Deb 06 August 1919 vol 119 cc389-90W

asked the President of the Board of Education, in view of the importance of securing free interchange of teachers between all schools, in the case of a teacher who serves for a period in an inspected and efficient school under a governing body which has its own pension scheme, whether, and under what conditions, the period served in the school having its own pension scheme will be reckoned for a pension under the School Teachers' Superannuation Act, 1918, and the rules made there under?


Qualifying service in a secondary school that is inspected and found efficient, and has its own pension scheme, will be counted towards the thirty years which a teacher is required by the Teachers' Superannuation Act, 1918, to serve; and a teacher who fulfils the condition of serving thirty years in qualifying and recognised service will be pensionable upon the whole of his recognised service, whether continuous or not, provided that his recognised service amounts to not less than ten years.
