Integra is a council division who trade with schools, local public sector organisations and local businesses, and provide services to the council. Integra was established as a single ‘Trade Services’ team in 2011 when the catering, cleaning and professional support services were brought together within the council and the large majority of schools funding was devolved to schools.  With input from South Gloucestershire schools, Traded Services rebranded as Integra, the trading arm of South Gloucestershire Council, in 2015.
FTE is calculated based on the number of contracted hours an employee works per week.  37 hours per week = 1 FTE. 1 FTE may equate to one employee  contracted to work full time (37 hours a week) or 1 FTE could be made up of a number of employees contracted to work less than 37 hours per week but collectively amount to 37 hours (1 FTE). The following table shows the number of FTE by department. Please note an employee’s FTE is counted in each role they work in.
