Teach First Ethnicity Pay Gap Report: 2020
Starting this year, we’re going beyond statutory reporting requirements and voluntarily reporting our ethnicity pay gap.
We believe transparency drives equality through accountability. That’s why we’re committing to doing this annually alongside our gender pay gap. We’d also like to see this be a statutory requirement for all employers.
We are committed to providing fair and competitive rewards to all our employees. And are confident that we pay our employees fairly for equivalent roles, regardless of their ethnic diversity.
We do have an ethnicity pay gap. This is driven by us having lower ethnic minority representation at management and senior leadership levels. We have worked to address this imbalance in recent years, but we have more to do as this report shows. As with gender, we continue to be clear on the fact that programmes alone aren’t enough to achieve our inclusion ambitions. We are working to create a more diverse workforce, bringing strong representation of and connection to the communities we serve into the workplace. We want to ensure that every individual can perform, grow and contribute with the confidence to be themselves at Teach First.
Whilst we still have much to do, meaningful progress is being made in improving our ethnic diversity and our wider inclusion efforts.
