Jisc and HESA Merge, Putting Jisc in Charge of Statutory Data for U.K. Higher Education Providers
Jisc and HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) completed a merger that takes effect from the beginning of October 2022. “The move will see all 171 HESA colleagues, including its CEO Rob Phillpotts, move to Jisc, creating a new data collection and statistics directorate,” Jisc shares. “Phillpotts, who has led HESA since November 2021, will head up the directorate and join Jisc’s executive leadership team.”
In addition, “Following consultation with the sector and the agreement of the Department for Education, the legal status as the sector’s designated data body (DDB) for England now transfers to Jisc, managed through the newly defined directorate. This merger means the responsibility for collecting and publishing statutory data for all higher education providers across the UK now lies with Jisc.”
