Arising from a commitment made by the parties to the New JNCHES Pay Settlement for 2016-17 the New JNCHES Equal Pay Reviews and Gender Pay Gap Reporting Guidance for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) guidance has been updated and will be published in January 2018.

It will be launched at three joint events, for more information follow the links below:

Thursday 18 January – Glasgow - 13.00 to 16.00 

Friday 26 January - Manchester - 13.00 to 16.00                                                     

Tuesday 30 January – London - 13.00 to 16.00  

More information on UCEA's conferences and workshops can be found in the Seminars and events section of the website.


As part of the New JNCHES Pay Settlement for 2017-18, the employers and trade unions agreed to further joint work on gender pay gaps. Acknowledging that HE institutions are active in consideration of gender pay gaps, this joint work will involve a survey of HEIs on gender pay gap action planning across the institution. The survey is intended to establish where action planning is taking place as well as how HEIs are going about this. In addition, in order to inform about the level of involvement of staff representatives in such work, the trade unions will undertake a parallel survey of their branches on branch level involvement in action planning to close the gender pay gap. The joint work will also take forward discussion, involving additionally the Equality Challenge Unit, to examine ways that this joint work could examine intersectionality with other protected characteristics. The joint work is expected to commence early in 2018.
