GB-Bristol: Feasibility study for a more consistent local offer for care experienced students

Provider commitments to care experienced students in access and participation plans are variable, and stakeholder engagement has highlighted inconsistency of provider and local authority support to care leavers in terms of information, advice and guidance, admissions (academic offer), financial and pastoral support and accommodation. Care leavers report that academic pathways and support offers are unclear and unhelpful, which can be a deterrent to access, and impact upon successful participation in higher education. To further support our work in identifying and promoting effective practice we are commissioning a feasibility study to identify options for piloting a national common framework of support for care experienced students in local areas across the country. Should the framework prove to be effective, the OfS would seek to encourage all registered providers to adopt it. This would provide care experienced students with a clearer pathway in terms of academic requirements and the support provided in terms of information, advice and guidance, financial and pastoral support and accommodation. This will be phase one of a two phase project. The commission is for a desk-based research project involving engagement with providers, Uni Connect partnerships, local authorities and regional networks to unpick the complexities and opportunities of developing such a framework. The required output from this phase will be a report to the OfS which maps out the current environment with regard to support for care experienced students and sets out options for how a national framework might be developed. The report will inform the shape and scope of phase two.

It is anticipated that the new contracts will commence on 01 October 2022. At this time, the Commissioners would like to determine the level of provider interest from all sectors (including voluntary and third sector) in preparation for forthcoming market engagement activities, which will consist of 1:1 meetings with the Commissioners in October / November 2020 and may then be followed by further events as deemed appropriate, e.g. a briefing event.

IPO Transformation Programme Market Engagement PIN.

The UK's IP regime is consistently ranked among the best in the world, and is central to the UK's innovation strategy, giving inventors, creatives, and entrepreneurs the confidence to invest in innovation and realise the benefits of their investments. Through the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), the UK has a well-established Intellectual Property regime for protecting and incentivising creativity and innovation to help businesses and the economy grow. However, it has been recognised that the IPO has a significant opportunity to transform the way it delivers its services to maximise its effectiveness and to help maintain its position as a global leader in the management of IP. In order to realise this opportunity the Intellectual Property Office is commencing a Transformation programme in January 2021, with the following high-level objectives focussing on our services, our customers, our people and our data: • IPO will transform the way it delivers services to its customers so that we can continue to offer exceptional customer experience in an increasingly digital world. We will put customers at the heart of those developments giving customers a consistent experience across the full range of our existing registered services (Patents, Trade Marks and Designs) and increased flexibility to respond to a changing environment; • We will provide customers with a new way to access our services and manage their entire portfolio of IP through a User account; • We will provide enhanced capability to unlock the value of the data and content we hold; • We will build the enduring capability for future development of our services by fully involving our people in the transformation journey; • We will ensure our organisational design provides the best model to allow IPO to meet its strategic objectives, providing our customers with the most effective engagement with us and also positions the IPO as a global leader in the management of IP; • Our People will have the right skills, tools and support to thrive in a digital workplace - A changing workplace will result in a need for IPO to ensure new capability requirements are met and managed in a way to ensure operational delivery is best in class and our Transformation offers an opportunity to unlock some of the existing constraints and make use of technology that offers not only the best value for money but is future proof to enable flexibility in the future; • IPO's capability will be sufficiently robust to be able to be to adaptable and responsive to a rapidly changing global environment - Our teams and services should be built in a way that enables them to be able to react to changes in the internal and external environment. The current estimate for the Transformation Programme duration is 4-5 years.
