Gender pay gap report

University College Birmingham is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and has well developed policies which support this commitment. Staff regularly receive training so that they understand their legal obligations and this is embedded in their day-to-day work.

As part of these legal obligations we are publishing this data in response to our responsibilities under the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 which require us to report on a number of metrics as of 31st March in a given year. 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.

The data used was provided by Birmingham City Council, Payroll Department using a reporting tool developed by their own system providers, SAP, and is based on ACAS guidance in association with the Government Equalities Office.
