Gender pay gap reporting requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations each year showing the pay gap between male and female employees. The gender pay gap is the difference between the average pay (expressed as both the mean and median) of men and women expressed as a percentage and should not be confused with equal pay.
On 31st March 2022 City College employed 302 people and is therefore in the category of organisations which are required by the UK Government to publish details of their gender pay gap, specifically the difference in average female earnings compared to average male earnings.
Mean (Average) Gender Pay Gap
The College’s overall mean gender pay gap at 31 March 2022 was 2.93%, which means that men earn on average 2.93% more than women. However, this number is significantly smaller than the national gender pay gap reported as 8.3% in March 2022 (up from 7.7% in 2021) and is down from the College’s gender pay gap of 5.28% reported for 2021.
The mean gender pay gap does vary by role type:
Median Gender Pay Gap
The College’s median pay gap is 5.63% (down from 7.53% in 2021). Our median hourly rate for males and females combined is £13.99 with the median being £13.58 for females and £14.39 for males – a difference of 81p (down from £1.07 in 2021).
The College employs substantially more women (60%) than men (40%) and whilst some roles have traditionally attracted more male applicants (for example, construction and engineering teachers) or female applicants (for example, administrative support), we are working to attract a more diverse range of applicants across all roles.
 Mean gender pay gap is the difference between men’s and women’s average hourly rate Median gender pay gap is the difference between the midpoints in the ranges of hourly earnings of men and women
