The Department ran a public consultation which closed on 12 February 2019 to gather evidence on the impact of increased contributions to the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) for all TPS employers, including universities. Final decisions on funding will be taken once the consultation responses have been reviewed. All funding decisions for 2020/21 onwards will be decided as part of the forthcoming Spending Review.
