Getting to Wadham College

Investors in people

Wadham College was successfully re-accredited with the Investors in People award in August 2012, having held the award since 2003.

The Investors in People standard provides a framework to help organisations understand how effectively they are involving and enabling staff in the development and delivery of organisational aims.  It uses the quality cycle of ‘plan, do, and review’ so that continuous improvement and effective feedback are core principles.  More information about IiP here.

Achieving IiP provides recognition for the College’s good practice in people management and development. The award demonstrates the importance we place on staff engagement, quality people management and work towards for continuous improvement. IiP assessment includes face to face interviews with a representative sample of staff chosen by an external assessor.

Living Wage

Wadham College was accredited as a Living Wage Employer in April 2015.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. More here

The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
