Teachers Pay Day is right around the corner, and if you are looking for teacher discount codes to help make your money go further, you’re in the right place.


Managing your money after payday can be a struggle, especially with the rising cost of living. Research conducted by Nationwide discovered that 1 in 5 people spend over half their monthly wages within 48 hours of being paid, leaving them with little to last the month.

Teachers Pay Day: What day of the month do teachers get paid UK?

Payday for teachers across the UK can differ depending on your role. For example, temporary teachers are often paid on the twelfth working day of the month. However, permanent and pro-rata teachers are often paid on the last working day of the month.
