Teaching and Learning Responsibility (TLR) payments
Teachers that undertake additional responsibility can be awarded a Teaching and Learning Responsibility (TLR) payment. To qualify for TLR2 payments, teachers must show they have a specific responsibility, which is focused on teaching and learning and requires professional skills and judgment. This responsibility must exceed the normal responsibilities of a standard classroom teacher and should be defined in the job description. To qualify for a TLR1 payment you must meet all criteria for TLR2 and also be a line manager for a significant number of people.
