4.5 Staff satisfaction (% agree)

As a sustainable institute we must ensure our staff are content and enjoy the City environment. If staff are satisfied this will impact positively on the student community. The University conducts a biennial staff survey. The Engagement Index provides a measure of employee satisfaction and is drawn from answers to questions concerning employee advocacy (speaking positively about the organisation, its services and as an employer); employee commitment and an employee's discretionary effort (a desire to go above and beyond the call of duty to achieve success).

4.6 Academic services and resources spend (£/student FTE)

Updating academic services and facilities is essential in developing a world-leading institution. The spend per student on service and facilities is used widely in rankings of UK universities. The University submits a financial return to HESA each year. At institution level the academic spend and financial spend can be obtained. The Times Good University Guide uses a two-year average when calculating the measure to normalise any large rises or decreases in spend.

4.7 Widening participation

Academic excellence is core to our Vision. It is essential that we ensure we are attracting students with excellent academic potential, regardless of social and financial background. In addition, we are required to demonstrate our success in this regard and submit our objectives to the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). We must achieve them if we are to maintain our ability to charge fees of £9,000 for UK and other EU undergraduates. The indicator for students no longer in higher education is an additional measure submitted in the University's Access Agreement.

With academic excellence core to our Vision, it is essential that we ensure we are attracting students with excellent academic potential, regardless of gender, ethnicity and disability status.

In the Access Agreement we have set out to maintain at least 47% of our students from black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds.
