Dear Newbattle Abbey College,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Newbattle Abbey College's handling of my FOI request 'Gender equality at Scottish further education institutions'.

My apologies, I may not have been clear in my original request. The information I seek on median pay for men and median pay for women should relate to all paid staff at the organisation.

Apologies for any lack of clarity on my part, and I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Thanks,

Ally Tibbitt

Jackie Kane, Newbattle Abbey College

Good Afternoon

My apologies for not answering the final question as requested. I thought your FOI request was based on Board Members. However, the average salary as at 1 January 2018 is Men £17,592; Women £17,110.

Thanks.
