The College recognises that there has been significant change across both higher education and at the College over the last few years. The academic restructure and other initiatives mean there is more change to come. As a result, some of our academic colleagues may feel now is the time to consider alternative career options and/or life path and may wish to leave the College. On Friday 15 February, the College is opening a Voluntary Severance (VS) Scheme so that eligible colleagues who feel this way can explore their options.

Details of the VS Scheme are here and will be emailed to all eligible academics on Tuesday 12 February. A further email will be sent to eligible academics when the Scheme opens on Friday 15 February. The VS Scheme is available to academics; Professors, Senior Lecturers, Lecturers and Readers. The Scheme is optional and acceptance onto the Scheme is not guaranteed.

UCU has been briefed on the VS Scheme and the Deans and Heads of Department have been sent information on the Scheme detail, timings and their part in the process.

If you have any questions, please contact your HRBP once the Scheme goes live on Friday 15 February.
