Each Teacher’s Reference Number is unique to them and is used for among other things recording pensionable service. It is therefore very important that when a Teacher starts a new job, that this is included on their application form, as this allows us to
report your pensionable service to Teachers’ Pensions swiftly and accurately.
If the Teacher Reference Number is not included this can result in gaps in pensionable service, delays in updating pensionable service and creating inaccurate records which will not allow teachers to track the progress of their pension.
This is a little reminder to all staff who are involved in providing the Teacher Reference number to Bradford Council, as part of a HR process, or a Payroll process to please ensure it is provided in all instances. This really will help us record accurate
and up to date service for Teachers.
Many thanks for your support with this, if you have any problems or queries, please get in touch with:
