Alison Halford (Delyn):

Has she any plans to review the salaries of the further education sector in Wales in the light of a drop in the relating sector earnings. (OAQ7480)

Jane Davidson:

The salary of staff employed by further education institutions is a matter for the employer or the Further Education Corporation or governing body. There is no centrally determined pay structure. I am aware of concerns expressed by some further education institutions about the differences in salary between schools’ sixth form teachers and sixth form college lecturers, and that the Department for Education and Employment in England has budgeted additional resources in 2001-02 to help reduce the gap between the two pay structures. I am considering what, if anything, should be done in Wales.
