Gender Pay Gap Report

Wessex Learning Trust is committed to the promotion of equality of opportunity and choice for employees and supports fair treatment of all staff irrespective of gender through our transparent recruitment processes, pay policy and professional development. All our posts are aligned to nationally agreed pay scales and our male and female staff are paid within the same pay band for the same job role.

The Gender Pay Gap is a high level, non-adjusted indicator of male and female earnings which is affected by workforce distribution and workforce make-up.

The majority of staff are in the lower pay quartiles and the workforce is predominantly female. Therefore the gap between the "average" female hourly rate of pay and the "average" male hourly rate of pay is significantly affected.

The overall pay gap reflects workforce composition rather than pay inequalities.
