To be registered with the EWC, all school and FE teachers, school and FE learning support workers, youth workers, youth support workers and work-based learning practitioners in Wales must pay an annual fee. You must be registered with the EWC to work in these categories in Wales.

The fees are decided by Welsh Government. The fees for 2018-19 are:

School teachers £45
FE teachers £45
School learning support workers £15
FE learning support workers £15
Youth workers £45
Youth support workers £15
Work-based learning practitioners £45

The fees are payable every financial year (1 April – 31 March).

If you are registered in more than one category, for example, FE teacher and FE learning support worker, then you will only pay one fee. However, you will pay the highest fee of the two categories. The fee is the same whether you work full or part time.

Your employer will deduct the fee from your salary at the end of March every year. If you are not in contracted employment and your fee is not paid by your employer, then you need to pay us directly. You can do this by visiting this page or by calling us on 029 2046 0099.
