Senate news

Arrangements for allocating an additional £700,000 from the funding council for ‘rewarding and developing staff’ were agreed in outline by Senate, following discussions at committees and with trades unions.

Payments will be targeted to recognise high performance and address recruitment or retention problems, with emphasis on progressing staff on the lecturer ‘A’ scale.

See more information, including criteria for allocating awards - (this will be available as soon as possible).

A review of the mechanisms for distributing teaching and research money to departments – the resource centre and overhead models – has been launched. The current systems are now some ten years old, and need overhaul.

Consultation will take place across campus, to produce proposals for discussion in 2002-3, and implementation the following year.

Three key priorities for 2001-2 were outlined by the Vice-Chancellor; student recruitment, research volume and quality and third arm volume and quality. Discussions with departments and at the centre will address all three, including new courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

See more information (this will be available as soon as possible).
