Whilst women make up 63% of teaching staff in secondary schools, they only make up 38% of the senior headteachers.

The apparent obstacles to advancement in education is due to maternity care and factors related. Due to the fact that women are more likely to taker career breaks than men, the National Education Union argues that PRP has had a negative impact on the advancement of women in education.

The Statistics

  • At primary school level, 14% of the teaching staff are male, and 27% of headteachers are also male. so, in primary schools’ men are at senior level at a ratio of almost 2:1.

 

  • In 2019 more than nine out of 10 institutions paid their average male employee more than they paid their average female employee.

 

  • British universities reported an average median pay gap of 13.7%.

 

  • In 2016 The BBC reported that in the UK, only one in four professors were female, despite the fact that half of the lecturers are women.

 

  • Times Higher Education data from 2017, cited by WomenCount, showed that the number of female professors was in fact decreasing rather than increasing in 30% of universities.

 

  • Female teachers earn around £2,900 less than men in that same role. This gender pay gap actually widens for teachers who are in any leadership positions and continues to widen as their career progresses.
