Farnborough College of Technology supports the fair treatment, reward and recognition of all staff irrespective of gender. The College ensures that equality and diversity remains a key tenet in our transformational plans and is confident that women and men are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs.

The College operates a performance related pay system linked to the achievements of the college as a whole. Where the college is performing well, all staff are rewarded with a percentage increase to their salary.

The College employs significantly more female than male staff. This is due in part to the number of part-time and term time-only support role that we have that attract more female than male staff. These are mostly in the lower and lower-middle quartiles.

Regular analyses and reporting will continue to be undertaken to further understand the extent of the gender pay gap with our processes in how we attract, appoint and pay our staff monitored to ensure staff are treated fairly and given equal opportunities.

The College will continue to ensure that all staff are given equal opportunities and work towards reducing the gender pay gap.
