Quality Compliance Manager

Quality Compliance Manager

Our client is a northern based private education provider with a track record of delivering bespoke higher education programmes.  The Higher Education and Research Act 2017 brought substantive changes to the Higher Education Regulatory Framework in England. Our client wanted to capitalise on this opportunity and register with the Office for Students (OfS) as a new provider. 

Initial advisory work was quickly followed by a targeted search to find an experienced manager who could lead the registration application process. The candidate would also support the company build its governance and management process to meet the regulatory framework for academic quality and standards. We utilised our extensive network of Higher Education contacts and Interim Education Managers to deliver a shortlist of four candidates.  The client was presented with a diverse range of candidate profiles, skills and experience. Working with and advising the client we were able to build a cost-effective package of support for them. This included securing an experienced manager with significant QA experience from the University sector, and a support package that included strategic advice and guidance provided by the Head of our Education practice. 

We look forward to them securing registration from OfS as a new provider during 2018/19.
