Fancy a 4-day working week*?
Grantham College ran a trial of a 4-day working week from September 2022, as a result of staff feedback and the positive impacts experienced during the trial has been made permanent from April 2023. Staff benefit from a reduction in working hours but still receive full pay, a full-time member of staff with a permanent salaried contract for 37 hours per week reduces to an average of 33 hours per week with the same pro rata reduction for part time employees. Annual leave entitlements will reduce in line with the reduction in contracted hours, but the number of weeks of leave will remain the same. You will work your core hours Monday to Thursday with full time staff working a Friday morning on the 4th week. Upon commencing employment with Grantham College the 4 day week will be discussed with you in detail.
Grantham College experienced positive benefits from the trial including improvement to staff wellbeing and morale. We have also seen benefits in terms of reduced staff turnover leading to greater consistency of performance for our students and apprentices. The number of staff sickness absence days has reduced alongside the energy usage for the college and therefore its carbon emissions. We have also seen improvements in key quality indicators such as student attendance and retention and we are confident this will feed through into improved achievement rates and more positive outcomes for our students.
