Launchpad Subscribers

Independent HE Launchpad Subscribers

The Blackford Centre is a new launchpad member joining in Summer 2019. IHE have been supporting them in their ambitions to create online higher education provision to add to their Access to HE course and extensive current online course offer. We have been advising them on a number of different areas including:

  • Options for validation and franchising
  • Governance structures – both academic and operation
  • Partnership and articulation agreements
  • Carving out a niche in the market for the courses

“We see IHE as being able to play a useful role in supporting our journey towards a degree programme.”

TEDI-London is a new provider offering engineering related degrees in Southeast London. They have sought Independent Higher Education’s support through the process of becoming a new provider, specifically with the regulatory requirements. They have received advice and support in areas including:

  • Application for new providers with the Office for Students
  • Training and support on Access and Participation
  • Quality and standards conditions for new providers
  • New Degree Awarding Powers
