Policy

Base level provision – published in 1999 and commission by the Higher Education Funding Councils for England and Wales, this document became a seminal paper for many staff working within HEIs in those countries as a means of leveraging institutional policy initiatives and resources. Several of the policy suggestions were taken forward at national level including the introduction of weighted funding which was allocated to HEPs. One area where I believe HEPs still haven’t got their act together entirely is on systems for ensuring that individual needs are assessed in a timely way and that there is an efficient system for sharing this information appropriately. Also, the overall document was flawed because it failed to address in any real way inclusive teaching and learning.
