*All subsidies in this model will be paid to the Council via the Welsh Government. The subsidy is only available where there is a requirement to register with the EWC.

The fee model of charging for registration has to be fair and equitable across the whole workforce; recognising that salaries can vary greatly within different groups across the education workforce. It is based on grouping by profession and on the salary data derived, with the lower earning categories contributing the least.
