Higher education workforce framework 2010

The higher education (HE) workforce framework looks at the major considerations and challenges that face the workforce of the English HE sector. It examines key issues and draws on evidence to inform policy making and strategic planning at higher education institutions (HEIs).

The framework is published as two reports supported by a range of research reports.

The HE Workforce Steering Group for this work was chaired by Professor Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor of Bournemouth University.

Research reports

As part of the underpinning research for the HE workforce framework reports, we have commissioned and published five independent reports:

Sector impact assessment

In developing our HE workforce framework reports, we have undertaken a formal assessment of the impact it will have on the HE sector in terms of regulatory burden, equality and diversity, and sustainable development.

Trends and profiles of staff

As part of its work to assist HEIs in their own strategic workforce planning, we have produced the latest in six annual reports that provide an overview of trends and profiles of staff employed in English HEIs. It includes information on staff in academic years 1995-96 to 2008-09.

HE workforce framework 2006

We produced our first HE workforce framework in 2006. The 2010 Framework reports develop the themes from this first report and add further, and more up to date, commentary.
