The number of applications the University has had from academic staff at grade 7 to be regraded under the HERA process, in the last 5 years, and the number that went up to grade 8 as a result and the number that stayed on the same grade after the re-grading.

The number of applications the University has had from academic staff at grade 8 to be re-graded under the HERA process, in the last 5 years, the number that went up to grade 9 as a result, the number whose grade remained unchanged and the number whose grade came down to 7 as a result of the re-grading process.
Grade 7 to Grade 8

Prior to June 2010 we only maintained records for members of staff who were regraded to a different grade through the reassessment of grade process. I think it was Martin who asked for similar information back then and therefore we have kept records of all regradings from this point.

Therefore, since June 2010 - 17 academic staff have applied for reassessment of grade and 15 were regraded to grade 8. The Resourcelink system records, however, shows that 43 members of academic staff have increased from grade 7 to grade 8 during the last five years.

Grade 8 to Grade 9

Since June 2010 there has been one member of academic staff who has applied for re-assessment of grade who was grade 8. This was not successful. The Resourcelink system records show that 45 academic staff went from Grade 8 to Grade 9 during the last five years. We are not aware of any roles that changed to grade 7.
