Education budget (FOI)

Education budget (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 03 February 2016.


I am seeking a breakdown of how the education budget is spent. (for the academic years 2013/14 & 2014/15)
Specifically I would like to know;
How much is the education budget?
What percentage is spent on teachers’ salaries?
What percent is spent on paying supply teachers?
What percentage is spent on continuing professional development?



Net expenditure (income less expenditure)​£113,896,368​£118,286,801

These figures reflect the Education, Sport and Culture budget as a whole. 

As the accounts are based on the financial year, rather than the academic year, only 2014 and 2015 budget figures are provided.


Cost of teachers salaries as a % of total expenditure for ESC​43.02%​42.71%

This is a percentage of the gross Education, Sport and Culture budget, and includes head teachers, deputies, teachers, supply teachers and lecturers.

It does not include teaching assistants.


Cost of supply teachers as % of total expenditure for ESC ​​1.47%​1.32%


Cost of training as % of total expenditure for ESC ​0.65%​0.52%

This is a percentage of the gross Education, Sport and Culture budget, and includes training, staff development and conference and course fees. 

It doesn't include supply cover costs to release teachers for training, internally provided CPD, and excludes the costs of consultants.
