The Department for Education pays staff an annual salary and not an hourly rate of pay. The average gross pay of employees in the Department, split by ethnicity, is listed in Table 1 below that includes the Department’s three Executive Agencies. Not all employees choose to declare their ethnicity and the information has been calculated from the payroll records of staff who have provided this information.
