Since our launch in 2016 and our first strategy in 2018, IHE has grown in size, stature and influence, with over 70 institutions now comprising the most diverse membership of any higher education representative body, and a seat at the table whenever government or its regulatory bodies consider the issues of importance to higher education providers and their students.
The majority of IHE members in England are now formally regulated by the new independent regulator for higher education, the Office for Students. We welcome the steady maturing of a principles-based regulatory framework which focuses on the quality of education provided and the outcomes achieved by students, irrespective of the provider’s history or corporate form.
A framework which gives students and the public the confidence that their investment in education is safe, but still encourages diversity, distinction and innovation, is one in which independent providers can thrive. It relies upon trust, and autonomy earned through voluntary enhancement, so our first priority is to continue to build this confidence in IHE and our members through a focus on governance, transparency and the active promotion of good practice.
