Findings from the ITP sector have informed the Massey University review, and also represent the closest point of comparison for the university sector. Summary information about the findings across the ITP sector13 is provided in Table 1. The table provides baseline data from the participating ITPs in relation to pay and the representation and distribution of women. Table 1: Baseline numerical data for thirteen participating ITPs 14

The key gender equity issues for the ITP sector as a whole were: Rewards Gender differences in starting salaries Gender pay gap in allied/general roles Specific pay and employment practices that impact on how womenâ€™s work is valued and rewarded Participation Women over-represented in administrative and clerical roles Part-time positions attract less favourable terms, conditions and opportunities
While individual institutions developed PaEE action plans to address the gender equity issues they had identified, the information reported by the ITPs was also synthesised to identify seven key gender equity issues for the ITP sub-sector as a whole. 14 Ministry of Education (2009).
