The Department is still in the process of working through the details on the level of work force needed to deliver the coalition Government's education agenda in future years and therefore is not in a position to comment on the amount it will spend on staff pensions in each of the next five years.

Details of staff pension costs to the Department are published annually within the Resource Accounts and available on the Department's website. Information on costs for the last financial year (2010-11) will be available after the first week of July 2011:
