The latest ONS ASHE 2018 provisional data shows that the median pay gap in the UK between male and female teaching and education professionals is 6.1%. ‘Teaching and education professionals’ includes teaching staff across Early Years, Schools, Further Education and Higher Education. Approximately two thirds of ‘teaching and education professionals’ are in schools. In schools, the National Foundation for Educational Research’s 2017 evaluation of the teacher pay reforms found no evidence to indicate that females were disadvantaged by the current pay system.
