Gender pay gap
We are required by law to carry out gender pay reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (gender pay gap information) Regulations 2017. For the year 2019 to 2020 our mean gender pay gap was 1%. This means that female employees hourly rate is 1% lower than male employees.
Public sector bodies with 250 or more staff that were previously in scope of the public sector target (2017 to 2022) are required to continue collecting and reporting data on apprenticeships. This includes data on new apprenticeship starts, the total number of apprentices and organisational headcount.
