Academic teaching qualifications at HE providers in England 2014/15 to 2015/16

The link below provides data on staff with academic teaching qualifications at HE providers in England 2014/15 to 2015/16.

Academic teaching qualifications (*.xlsx) 

What is in the tables?

Table 1 shows the headcount and percentage of staff who either hold an academic teaching qualification, do not hold an academic teaching qualification or their status is not known for each HE provider in England.

Table 2 shows the percentage of staff who hold an academic teaching qualification* for the following contract types:

  • Academic employment function (whether they have a teaching only or teaching and research contract)
  • Mode of employment (whether they work full-time or part-time)
  • Terms of employment (whether they have an open-ended/permanent or a fixed term contract)

*Staff with ‘not known’ academic teaching qualifications are excluded.

Data for both tables is restricted to those staff who hold an academic teaching or an academic teaching and research contract. Atypical staff are excluded.

Important Health Warnings

  1. Because staff can hold multiple contracts, the data has been de-duplicated to allow headcount figures to be shown.
    Contracts have been de-duplicated using the following criteria, in this order:

    • Full person equivalent (FPE) (highest first)
    • Academic employment function (ascending order, so teaching only first)
    • Mode of employment (ascending order, so full-time first)
    • Terms of employment (ascending order, so open-ended/permanent first)
    • Contract key unique identifier (ascending order)

    For example, if a member of staff has 2 contracts, we would select the contract that forms the largest percentage of their employment at the HE provider. If each contract forms 50% of their employment, we would then select a teaching only contract over a teaching and research contract. If the member of staff does not hold a teaching only contract, then we would choose a full-time contract over a part-time contract.

  2. The staff contract population at 1 December has been used. Atypical staff are excluded.
  3. The methodology used for this publication differs from the figures published by HEFCE in December 2016 and therefore data is not comparable.
  4. See the definitions for the HESA Staff record for the meanings of terms used in this release.
  5. All data is subject to the HESA standard rounding methodology.
  6. HESA cannot accept responsibility for any inferences or conclusions derived from the data by third parties.
