Wells Advisory HE is distinctive in offering consultancy services provided by senior advisers drawn from UK HE, while also adding an Australian perspective where the highly successful parent company is based. This international dimension provides close ties with the Far East (China in particular) as well as Australasian partnership opportunities and HE experience.
The principle areas of support and advice focus on strategic change to achieve income generation and innovation for UK HE providers. This spans portfolio review, most recently to identify opportunities for digital short courses, CPD and micro-credentials (pioneered in Australia), to organisational development and cost saving initiatives.
WA also has a track record of achieving international inward investment to support HE providers seeking international partnerships, funding packages, sale or purchase. Guidance can be provided on utilising such assets as degree awarding powers (TDAP) and UKVI Tier 4, together with the opportunity for advice and assistance with international student recruitment.
WA has a particular strength in advice and guidance on regulation, OfS Registration, quality assurance and governance across tertiary education. It is able to offer expertise to new entrants, established HE providers (including independents) and education provision across the FE / HE boundary.
The Principal Advisers in the UK include Professor Roger King, Professor Sir Deian Hopkin, Alison Allden OBE and Dr Liz Halford.
