Description/Abstract

The UK government assumes that performance-related pay systems are superior to time/seniority-based ones, particularly in jobs where effort is difficult to monitor. To what extent have the new incentives played a part in teacher motivation, if at all? The paper is based on interviews with Further Education tutors and their line managers. It considers the results in the light of commitment and risk-aversion, and a ‘principal agent – moral hazard’ model of performance pay.
