As you will have seen in last Friday’s all staff email the preparations for our IiP 2017 reaccreditation are underway.

On Monday 20 March 2017 you will have received an email from IiP to complete an IiP employee survey (IiP40).

The survey is managed by IiP and is completely confidential and will be completed anonymously.

Thank you for those colleagues who have already completed the survey. Our current response rate is 26%.

To ensure we move to the next stage of IiP which will be the onsite visit, we need to achieve a response rate of 50%.  The closing date for completion of the survey is 7th April 2017.

Please do take the time to complete this survey. This is your opportunity to have a “voice”.

The UoB want to achieve a response rate of 85% as the summary reports will be invaluable in identifying what we do well and also what we might want to focus on at the institution and departmental level going forward.

With this in mind could I suggest that you familiarise yourselves beforehand with the material available on the dedicated IiP web page we have set up via the link below:

This will help you to understand the new IiP standard, the timescales this year and also work completed and underway following the last IiP assessment in 2014. We will update the page as we progress with IiP.

If you would like any further information about IiP or the process of reaccreditation itself in the first instance please contact Jo Edwards, HR Business Partner at
