With University and College Union committee elections coming up, what’s next for Jo Grady’s leadership?
Let’s begin with the news that broke yesterday afternoon, when the Russell Group, MillionPlus, GuildHE and University Alliance published a letter calling on the chair of the Commons education committee to conduct an investigation into the independence of the Office for Students. Fiona McIntyre was first out of the blocks to report the story.
Only yesterday, Playbook suggested that the select committee should consider an investigation into the OfS as part of its work this parliamentary term. The letter to chair Robin Walker, signed by the chief executives of the four higher education mission groups, is dated 12 January.
