Underlying causes of the gender pay gap
Under the law, men and women must receive equal pay for:
- the same or broadly similar work;
- work rated as equivalent under a job evaluation scheme; or
- work of equal value.
The Education Training Collective is committed to the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees, regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, age, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability. It has a clear policy of paying employees equally for the same or equivalent work, regardless of their sex or any other protected characteristic.
- All managers receive annual training in fair external and internal recruitment practice;
- Workforce profile reports are provided to Governors on a regular basis;
The Group is therefore confident that its gender pay gap does not stem from paying men and women differently for the same or equivalent work. Rather its gender pay gap is the result of the roles in which men and women work within the organisation and the salaries that these roles attract.
The Group’s gender profile is consistently around 2 female employees to one male and recruitment patterns reinforce these proportions.
However an analysis of the workforce has shown that The Group’s cleaning staff and Learning Support Assistants are largely comprised of female staff members. They all fall into the lowest salary band, which in turn impacts upon The Group’s pay averages.
The Senior Management Team is 50% male and 50% female. This also affects pay averages.
The Group will continue to take positive action to address pay imbalances between the genders in terms of its external and internal recruitment practices.
In addition, The Group has launched a learning and development strategy which identifies those staff with high potential to progress to senior management level and supports them with coaching and mentoring. A higher proportion of females to males were successful in their applications to join the programme.
