The full document gives more details on each of these aims and also sets out IHE’s criteria for success for each point. In their introduction to the Strategy, Alex Proudfoot, IHE Chief Executive, and Philip Wilson, IHE Chair, write:
“Higher education is changing. Students today invest more than ever before in their learning and future careers. Employers are more demanding of the skills and the knowledge of the graduates they recruit. The modern world will reward agile and resilient individuals with the creativity to chart their own path and the interpersonal craft to bring others along.
Independent Providers are setting the pace in developing innovative models and programmes which respond to this change, ensuring that the future of higher education in the UK is as bright as its past. Independent Higher Education will provide them with the leadership and support they need to build on the current reforms and deliver their distinctive missions. This Strategy for 2018-20 sets out how we will deliver our own.”
