Precarious contracts in FE - institution snapshot

Because there is no central agency tasked with collecting data about the further education workforce, every year, UCU conducts a Freedom of Information request on FE colleges in England. As part of this we ask for information about the contracts of employment of their teaching staff.

The results are published here. You can use the web tool below to look up your institution and see how it compares with others. Or you can download all the data in the excel file below.

Whether you are a member of staff, a student or just an interested observer, find out how your college ranks in our insecurity index.

We have published a full report which explains more about these tables and about insecure employment in our colleges here: Precarious teachers: insecure work in the English further education sector, May 17 [560kb]

You can download the data tables here [85kb].
