The FE Week Podcast: The great pay divide

21 Feb 2022, 16:00

Are staff struggling to make ends meet? Are they on unstable contracts?

In the first of a new investigative series, journalist Jess Staufenberg takes a closer look at the state of pay in further education – where staff get on average £9,000 less than their colleagues in schools.

Frontline lecturers, HR managers, principals, the sector’s union and membership association all join Jess to discuss this red-hot topic…as living costs keep climbing.
