About City

Performance

Vision & Strategy 2026 has four Academic Output KPIs. These are crucial to City’s success and where our high ambitions become crystallised as targets for 2021.

Academic Output KPIs

Vision & Strategy 2026 places emphasis on School Strategic Plans as the drivers of delivery, with annual planning rounds to:

  • Revise targets where the external environment has changed;
  • Revise project plans or method of delivery or increase our efforts where City is off target;
  • Achieve efficiency savings and allocate budgets as part of ‘business as usual’.

Deans are responsible for the performance of their Schools and Professional Service Directors are responsible for providing the services to support Schools and City as a whole.

Vision & Strategy 2026 has fewer targets than the Strategic Plan 2012 to 2016, which had four KPIs and 29 PIs. Vision & Strategy 2026 has four Academic Output KPIs. These are crucial to City’s success and where our high ambitions become crystallised as targets for 2021. We will consider targets each year on a rolling basis, thereby extending them to 2026. In addition, we will continue to monitor other PIs and relevant data, including university league tables and rankings, through the usual management and governance reporting processes.

Academic Output KPITarget for 2021
Student employabilityTop 20 in the Times and Sunday Times University League Table
Student progression90% average across all undergraduate programmes
Student experienceConsistently best NSS in London, top 20% in the UK
ResearchAt least 60% of total academic staff producing 4*/3* research

This represents a significant set of challenges for the next five years and will require energy and ambition from everyone and a strong performance and accountability framework to keep us all on track.
