Gender Pay Gap Reporting Statement
The College is committed to addressing workplace barriers to equality and providing all employee’s with equality of opportunity.
Under the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 we are required to report on our Gender Pay Gap.
This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of our male and female employees across our organisation, regardless of role or seniority.
The statistics used in these calculations are based on our workforce profile as of 31 March 2017.
We can use these results to assess:
- the levels of gender equality in our workplace
- the balance of male and female employees at different levels
- how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded
The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any gender pay gaps.
Prior to this legislation coming into force, the College examined its pay structure and looked at what measures it could take to narrow its gender pay gap as much as possible. We are pleased to see that this work has resulted in a relatively low mean pay gap, but we recognise that there is further work to be done to reduce the gender pay gap.
