HR & Payroll Software and Outsourced Payroll Services for the Education Sector.

There are many things to consider when choosing a payroll provider in the education sector; from teachers’ pensions to data security.

At Cintra, our software ensures that payroll processing is easy, accurate and efficient for all of our education clients, while our expert team is experienced in providing trusted support to this sector.

Key Features

Date-Driven System
Our software is date-driven, which means it can facilitate easy maintenance of all elements of TPA and LGPS ‘banded’ contributions. This allows the user to easily update ‘contractual pay’ and pension percentage deductions by contract if required.


MCR Module and Teacher’s Pensions
Our software allows users to calculate MCR with a click of a button, outputting a file to be submitted directly to TPA. This in turn will improve accuracy and reduce errors for teacher’s pensions.

Data Securely Stored
We ensure that all of your confidential data is stored safely and securely so you don’t have to worry about a security risk.


Fully Compliant
We comply with all HMRC real-time information and remain informed on any legislation changes which may affect you.


Run Essential Reports
Run key reports, including SIR (which is essential for colleges), and produce statutory forms as required by HMRC, TPA and the LGPS.

Input Multiple Roles Per Employee
Functionality to input multiple contracts of employment for employees, which is linked with both teachers and LGPS pension schemes.
