Rewarding and Developing Staff in Higher Education. Consultation.
Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
This consultation document proposes a method for allocating the additional resources for rewarding, retaining, and developing staff in higher education in England, announced as part of the Government's Year 2000 spending review. The Government set aside 50 million pounds for the financial year 2001-2002, rising to 110 million pounds in 2002-2003, and 170 million pounds in 2003-2004. It is proposed that the extra funds be distributed to institutions in proportion to their combined basic recurrent grants from the Higher Education Funding Council for England for teaching and research. The funding would be released once institutions had provided human resources strategies addressing certain priority areas, including: (1) recruitment and retention difficulties; (2) specific staff development and training objectives; (3) development of equal opportunities targets; (4) reviews of staffing needs; and (5) performance reviews of all staff. Institutions would be free to determine their own objectives, and specific targets would be monitored through their annual operating statements. Administrators in human resources management are asked to respond to specified consultation issues related the proposal by February 12, 2001. An attachment (annex) contains a chart of indicative allotments for rewarding and developing higher education staff. (SLD)
