The New JNCHES Pay Agreement for 2015-16 set out further joint work on investigating the gender pay gap in the HE Sector, and culminated in the joint report.
The executive summary is set out below for information.
The findings in this report analyse the gender pay gap and balance within HE and compares them with other parts of the UK economy where data are available.
This report builds on previous New JNCHES work, which included a literature review on the factors affecting the gender pay gap and case studies on what higher education (HE) institutions are doing to tackle them (see chapter 7).
The interactive charts which accompany this report provide a more comprehensive view of the trends and the key findings are summarised below:
