College staff survey 2018

A thriving FE sector with a strong workforce is fundamental to delivering on the current programme of reforms in the sector, including the introduction of T Levels from 2019 and ongoing refinements to apprenticeship delivery. Prior to the current survey, there was relatively limited data on the skills and experience of FE staff and how that matched the requirements of the posts they fill and may fill in the future. The 2018 survey purposely focussed on teaching and leadership staff within incorporated colleges – those who are most directly involved in the planning and delivery of FE. The Department is considering plans for further research to capture workforce data from the FE sector more widely. The survey re-confirms the scale of college-based education. There were around 60,000 FE teachers in colleges in 2018. Most FE college teachers were employed directly by the colleges they work in, with around three quarters (76%) holding a permanent contract with the college. The evidence is that colleges avoid using agency teaching staff where they can – just 4% of teachers described themselves as being employed through an agency. However, around one in five teachers (20%) were employed on flexible or zero hours contracts.

College staff survey 2018

I recently wrote to ask for your help with, and participation in, DfE’s College Staff Survey 2018. The survey has now launched and I’m contacting you with further information on our request to participate. The survey is aimed at all college teachers, and leaders and is being sent to all General Further Education and specialist colleges in England. It is an opportunity to collect detailed information about the teaching and leadership workforce. The information teachers and leaders provide will help us to support the sector more effectively. The survey comes at an important time for the sector, with the roll- out of new apprenticeship standards, introduction of T-levels, and launch of the new Institutes of

Kantar Public, working with RCU, was commissioned by the Department for Education to deliver the College Staff Survey 2018. All General Further Education (GFE) and FE specialist colleges in England were in-scope for the research. The research contained three components: a principals’ survey; a teachers and leaders survey; and a staff return questionnaire, which asked colleges to return administrative data.

Mellon Foundation Art Museum Staff Demographic Survey

proposed partnering with AAMD to conduct a demographic survey of art museum staff and boards. In the fall of 2014, the Foundation commissioned Ithaka S+R to design and implement a survey with the assistance of an advisory committee of AAMD staff and member museum leaders. AAM supported the effort by enabling distribution of the survey to art museums that are not AAMD members. In the winter of 2015, 77% of AAMD institutions and 15% of the additional AAM cohort completed the staff survey. AAMD and AAM response rates for board diversity were considerably lower (38% and 4%, respectively), and too unrepresentative for inclusion in this report. While the report below is generally limited to the AAMD respondents, the findings for the smaller AAM

Survey of childcare and early years providers : 2018

Survey of childcare and early years providers : 2018

Figure 3 shows that the overall number of childcare places in England fell between 2016 and 2018. There were estimated to be 2,841,300 childcare places across all provider types in 2018, compared to 3,093,000 in 2016 (Table 5). This fall in the number of places largely reflects the reduction in the number of providers shown in Figure 1. However, reductions in the average number of places within providers (Figure 2) also account for some of the decline. This decrease in the number of childcare places in England has taken place at a time when the number of children of relevant ages for this childcare provision in the population has also decreased 2 .

Survey of training and training needs of ophthalmic support staff

Survey of training and training needs of ophthalmic support staff

The Open University would want assurance that a minimum of 100 new students would enrol each year. There are more than 150 eye departments in the UK, with, according to the survey, an approximate 8 staff per department who would benefit from training, or 1,200 in total. Thus if 100 per year entered the programme it would take 15 years to train them all. A new programme is likely to attract more students in the early years and a ‘steady state’ might be reached well before this. If considered from the perspective of staff turnover, and we assume a modest figure of 10%, more than 100 students per year would be needed to maintain training levels once a steady state has been reached. On this basis there are sufficient student numbers to sustain a distance learning programme, with the caveats that there should be only one education provider, and the programme was supported by the majority of eye departments. These assumptions are based on current activity and working practices. With an ageing population, cost restraints that make it likely that more work will be devolved to support staff, and higher levels of skill that will be required with the emergence of new technologies, it is probable that numbers of support staff and demand for the programme will increase.

Survey of Canadian Career College Students

than were students with higher levels of education. The main activity of students prior to entering their PTI program (e.g., employed, in school, stay-at-home parent) had no effect on their probability of graduating. Other variables affecting graduation rates were related to students’ reasons for entering a PTI and their anticipated activity upon graduation. A significantly higher proportion of students who enrolled in a private college to increase their earning potential or remu- neration did not graduate compared to students who enrolled for other reasons, such as to change their career/field or gain specific practical skills or those who were required/encouraged to do so by their employer. Students who anticipated pursuing further studies after completing their PTI program were less likely to graduate than were students who anticipated working after graduation. In other words, at the time of the In-School Survey, a higher proportion of students who became non-graduates expected to enroll in further studies after completing their PTI program. Similarly, a lower proportion of non-graduates anticipated seeking employment related to their PTI program when the In-School Survey was conducted.

STAFF REPORT. MEETING: City Council - December 18, 2018 TITLE:

STAFF REPORT. MEETING: City Council - December 18, 2018 TITLE:

The City proposes to purchase Federal and CCI-Speer ammunition only. Police Department staff highly recommends this brand due to its high rating received by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in published ammunition data tests, the ability of the manufacturer to stand by its product on quality control issues, and due to it being one of the most cost-efficient options available when considering territorial pricing set by the manufacturers. The City purchases Federal brand 9 millimeters (9mm) for the 9mm caliber semi-automatic service weapon; .40 Smith and Wesson rounds for the 40 caliber semi-automatic service weapon; and .223 rounds for tactical and patrol rifle ammunition.

Trinity College Dublin Estates Strategy, November 2018

Trinity College Dublin Estates Strategy, November 2018

Today’s universities are deliberately seeking closer integration with urban life. At no point has the institutional mission been so outwardly focused as it is today. The motives behind this are not solely civic-minded. Students and staff are increasingly looking for the vibrancy and amenities of urban life, with the consequence that the ‘city’ has become a driving force in shaping the campus’s physical form. Selected universities are densifying and activating suburban or remote campuses by creating large- scale, mixed-use developments as a means to secure the competitive edge. North America is at the vanguard of this trend. In 2002, Simon Fraser University in British Columbia began construction on UniverCity, a residential community plus town centre sited immediately next to its primarily commuter academic core. The University of Calgary followed suit in 2015, by commencing infrastructure for a compact, pedestrian-focused community mixing residential, retail and employment uses to the west of its suburban campus. Furthermore, we are witnessing more and more examples of urban migration – institutions expanding from suburban bases into city-centre locations. Ulster University, for example, is building accommodation in central Belfast to replace its existing suburban facilities.

Abstracts from the College of Podiatry Annual Conference 2018

Abstracts from the College of Podiatry Annual Conference 2018

Background: Foot pain is common amongst the general population affecting approximately 10%, and more prevalent in women which may be attributable in part to footwear habits. The Glasgow Caledo- nian University (GCU) Alumni Foot Health Survey was developed to explore foot health characteristics amongst an educated population of adults. Specific objectives reported here are to describe foot health and footwear habits in an educated population of adults. Methods: Between February and March 2018, GCU Alumni with a working email address were invited to participate in the cross-sectional electronic survey (anonymously) by email via the GCU Alumni Office. In- vitations were distributed using Hobsons Radius customer relationship management software which permits unique views tracking for robust calculation of response rate. Valid responses from women were se- lected for analysis. The GCU Alumni Foot Health Survey was con- structed using the REDCap secure web online survey application and sought information on current and past footwear habits related to work/leisure (responses via a pictorial list representing 43 shoe styles). Footwear types were categorised as either poor, average or good. Re- sults are presented as summary descriptive statistics.

College-Savings Plans Industry Survey

measuring on an absolute basis. However, it is useful to compare fees in the context of a more refined peer group. The Morningstar Fee Level—Distribution methodology groups funds by strategic objective and distribution channel. In the context of selecting a 529 plan, the Morningstar Fee Level— Distribution compares investment options by distribution channel and investment type and helps investors pick the cheapest option within the direct-sold universe, or the most cost-competitive advisor-sold plan. With this data, investors can distinguish competitively priced advisor-sold plans such as the Arkansas iShares 529 plan and the Virginia CollegeAmerica plan, as well as unusually expensive direct-sold plans like North Dakota’s College SAVE plan. Exhibit 12 shows each plan’s average and asset-weighted Fee Level—Distribution rank. While the Morningstar Fee Level—Distribution is a useful tool for comparing funds with similar strategies and share classes, it doesn’t hint at whether the underlying investments are actively or passively managed. An increasing portion of the 529 market is entirely passively managed, while active management retains a foothold in some areas (especially advisor-sold plans). Other plans have options that include a mix of active and passive management. Program managers often design these blended options in the hope that the active managers provide peer-beating returns while the passive portions keep volatility in line with the market and limit manager-specific risk. The cost of running this range of strategies—active, passive, and blended—varies and makes it difficult to compare prices.

Survey of childcare and early years providers : 2018

Survey of childcare and early years providers : 2018

When collecting numeric information as part of the main SCEYP, such as childcare fees or opening hours, respondents’ answers were keyed in by the interviewer. It is possible for mis-keying to occur and on inspection, a small number of answers appeared either much too large or much too small or nonsensical given other survey answers. Therefore, it was decided to implement rules whereby certain values would be removed from the data. Only a small number of variables were affected and only a very small number of answers were removed. Table 16 summarises the topics and numbers of cases affected by these data cleaning protocols. Further detail about the protocols can be found in the user guides published alongside the SCEYP 2018 data, which will be available through the UK Data Archive.

The April 2018 Bank Lending Survey in Spain

The April 2018 Bank Lending Survey in Spain

According to the replies received, credit standards for loans to households for house purchase once again eased somewhat in 2018 Q1. This change was driven by increased competitive pressure, the better economic outlook, both in general and, especially, in the housing market, and a perceived improvement in borrowers’ creditworthiness (see Chart 2). The overall terms and conditions applied to these loans again eased further, mainly on the back of an improvement in cost of funds and balance sheet constraints, along with Supply and demand

Results of EAHP's 2018 Survey on Medicines Shortages.

Results of EAHP's 2018 Survey on Medicines Shortages.

Budgetary issues caused by medication shortages can be attributed to their needed procurement from another supplier or higher costs of alternatives. Needing to devote more staff time to the issue as well as the impact on the patient also contributes to budgetary pressures. When asked if medicine shortages have a negative impact on the overall budget, most chose either ‘agree’ (43% of responses) or ‘strongly agree’ (38%) (figure 45).

The January 2018 Bank Lending Survey in Spain

The January 2018 Bank Lending Survey in Spain

The survey results show that credit standards in Spain eased somewhat in 2017  Q4 in lending to households, both in loans for house purchase and consumer credit and other lending, while credit standards in lending to enterprises remained unchanged (see Charts 1.1.1, 1.2.1 and 1.3.1). The pattern in the euro area was similar, except in the case of loans to households for consumer credit and other lending, where credit standards barely changed. In both areas the general conditions applied to lending eased in most segments, with the exception of lending to enterprises in Spain and of loans to households for consumer credit and other lending in the euro area, where they remained unchanged. For the current quarter, Spanish banks did not envisage changes in credit standards in any segment, while euro area banks expected a slight easing in standards across the board.

The July 2018 Bank Lending Survey in Spain

that, during the first half of 2018, such measures had no bearing on the level of assets, while those of the euro area perceived there was a slight increase both in total assets and in risk-weighted assets (see Chart A.2). Further, these measures are estimated to have been conducive, in both areas, to an increase in their capital levels. In Spain, these measures are not expected to have borne significantly on lending standards and on the margins on loans in any segment, nor to have influenced banks’ funding conditions. In the euro area, by contrast, they prompted some easing in intermediaries’ funding conditions and a slight tightening of lending standards, without significantly affecting the margins applied, except in the segment of loans to households for house purchase, where margins will have increased somewhat as a result. As to the questions on the importance of certain factors in the setting of the margins applied, both Spanish and euro area banks stressed that the search for yield and competitive pressures were the most significant factors during the previous six months, in all segments, with these factors moreover being those that had gained most in importance from 2014 to 2017 (see Chart A.3). Lastly, in the ad hoc question analysing the impact of the NPL ratio on lending policy, domestic banks reported that NPLs scarcely affected lending standards and the conditions applied in the first half of 2018. On the contrary, in the period from 2014 to 2017, NPLs had prompted a slight tightening in standards and in the conditions applied to loans in some segments, owing mainly to the higher costs of capital and of balance-sheet restructuring operations, and to the increase in regulatory requirements (see Chart A.4). Euro area banks, for their part, perceived a somewhat greater influence of the NPL ratio on their lending policies. Hence, both from 2014 to 2017 and, to a lesser extent, in the first half of 2018, the level of doubtful loans prompted some tightening in standards and in the conditions applied in all segments, an effect due mainly to the impact of NPLs on risk perception and banks’ tolerance of such risks, and to the costs associated with balance-sheet restructuring operations.

Survey of childcare and early years providers : 2018

Data for the main SCEYP was collected via a telephone survey, administered by NatCen’s telephone unit, whilst the mixed mode short SCEYP survey combined online data collection with a paper questionnaire, which was posted to all sampled cases. Fieldwork for both surveys took place between March and July 2018, with surveys sent to a sample of providers from across the three provider types: school based providers (offering nursery provision), group based providers (operating on non-domestic premises); and childminders (on the Ofsted register of childminders; not including those registered with an agency). The sample was drawn from two sample frames: group-based providers and childminders registered with

The College of Medicine in the Republic of Malawi: towards sustainable staff development

people [1]. There was no Malawi medical school before the College of Medicine (COM) was established in 1991. Before that students were sent to medical schools in neighbouring countries and later abroad, in particular to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ire- land (U.K.) and the United States of America. Many grad- uates did not return and it was felt that the medical training received abroad was not appropriate for a doctor working in an African setting [2]. The curriculum at the COM was introduced in a gradual manner, and in 1998 the first students fully trained in Malawi graduated. The curriculum was based on the traditional British format and reviewed by external consultants in several curricu- lum conferences. It is a 5-year programme that leads to a Medical Bachelor and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree. After another 18 months of internship the doctor can be registered with the Medical Council of Malawi. In 2004 the COM introduced its own postgraduate programme as a 4 year Master of Medicine (M. Med) degree programme which qualifies the candidate for registration as a special- ist.
