Governance and OfS Compliance
Share this page
It’s been almost five years since the first English universities were approved for inclusion in the Office for Students’ (OfS’) register of providers. The register now lists over 400 providers, all of whom are subject to regulation by the OfS’ and who need to demonstrate compliance with a set of 24 “ongoing conditions of registration” and the OfS’ accounts direction.
The challenge for councils and boards is how do they obtain the assurance they need to be confident that conditions are being met in practice as well as on paper?
We've reviewed how a range of governing bodies have gone about this, drawing upon our insight from our members and clients and published information on governance frameworks. This briefing describes common approaches and highlights good practice.
