01:00 - 01:00
Plumpton College has granted its staff a 4% cost of living pay award from 1st April 2022. This award is above the Association of Colleges recommendation of 1% and sector average awards of 1.5%.
Principal Jeremy Kerswell shares:
We appreciate our staff have had a particularly challenging couple of years, continuing to go above and beyond for their students during a national pandemic and continue to face challenges with household bills set to rise.
We are pleased that our prudent financial management over the last four years has enabled us to sustain an operating surplus, and in turn, we can invest this back into our staff, recognising their continuous dedication to our students and the college.
Plumpton College Group subsidiary One Garden Brighton has also announced its commitment to pay staff the Brighton Living Wage. The college is also making significant investments into capital-building projects for our students’ benefit and the college’s long-term success.
