Dear Emma,

Please could you clarify your response to Q5 ii. on apprentices' remuneration. Could you convert the rate to an annual remuneration, in line with the given definition:

[adapted from the government's definition of remuneration (for
local authority chief officers) under section 43 of the Localism
Act 2011] Remuneration meaning:
(a)salary or, in the case of an individual engaged under a contract
for services, payments made by the university to the individual
those services,
(b)any bonuses payable by the university to the individual,
(c)any charges, fees or allowances payable by the authority to the
individual,
(d)any benefits in kind to which the individual is entitled as a
result of their office or employment,
(e)any increase in or enhancement of the individual's pension
entitlement where the increase or enhancement is as a result of a
resolution of the university, and
(f)any amounts payable by the university to the individual on the
individual ceasing to hold office under or be employed by the
university, other than amounts that may be payable by virtue of any
enactment.
(g) calculated as full-time equivalent

This is to make sure this answer is consistent with your other answers, and I don't make incorrect assumptions about how this is calculated.

Yours sincerely,
