School of Tropical Medicine to create 70 jobs with Regional Growth Fund boost

THE Regional Growth Fund’s £1.5m investment in Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine will bring new jobs to the city – and could save thousands of lives in the developing world.

The school will use the cash to set up a Centre for Maternal and Child Health in buildings across the road from its current home in Pembroke Place.

The grant will unlock millions of pounds more in research cash for the school, allowing it to fund the centre and the creation of up to 70 jobs.

It is the first phase in the expansion plans for the school that director Dr Janet Hemingway first revealed in the Post in July.

Dr Hemingway told the Post this week: “This is the next phase in our expansion.

“We will be setting up a maternal and child health centre, that will be bringing new jobs to the city.

“We anticipate that we should be able to bring in around another £6.9m in research funding.”

The school is planning to transform the modern red-brick buildings in Pembroke Place, above its Well Travelled Clinics vaccination centre, into a home for the new centre.

Dr Hemingway hopes the work will be finished by January, 2014.

The centre will focus on improving healthcare in developing countries for women giving birth, and for the newborn children.

It will also help to train people in areas that are far from hospitals so that they can better respond to any emergencies in childbirth.

Dr Hemingway said: “We know that this is applicable in Africa and Asia, for example, but there might be some lessons that can be learned for us in the UK.”

£170m masterplan to transform Liverpool schools set to get green light

A £170m masterplan to transform schools across Liverpool is to be rubber-stamped within days.

The multi-million pound makeover, revealed fully for the first time today, includes rebuilding 12 schools in a £135m scheme over the next four years.

And on Monday the Mayor’s Cabinet is also expected to approve splashing another £35m on schools in the city deemed in most need of investment between now and 2018.

But the council recruited a task force of leading business figures for a scaled-down “Plan B”.

And this will now become a reality under the new project being funded through the sale of surplus school sites, council resources and money from the additional £130m handed to the city under the Mayor’s city deal. Mayor Joe Anderson used his mayoral manifesto to pledge to build 12 new schools.

As part of the city deal with the Government, he agreed that six would be centrally- funded academies free from town hall control.

Confirming the investment, Mayor Anderson said: “Our children deserve the very best education, and this investment will deliver huge improvements in the quality of the buildings they are taught in.”

Work is already under way on the £15m new home for Everton Valley secondary Notre Dame, which is moving from its Victorian home to a new site and will share facilities with neighbouring Everton Park sports centre, on Great Homer Street.

The school, due to open next year, will also be the home of Liverpool Music Support Service, which takes music into classrooms across the city.

Walton secondary Archbishop Beck will move from its cramped cul-de- sac to a new school on the former council depot in Long Lane and is due to open in 2014. With a sports emphasis, facilities could include could include a basketball arena.

Delighted headteacher Paul Dickinson said: “I am really excited about the school and the outstanding facilities will be great, not just for the school but the whole community.”

Croxteth’s St John Bosco Arts College missed out on a BSF rebuild and had been earmarked to open on the Stonebridge Cross development before the possible construction of a giant warehouse scuppered that plan. But, on Monday, it is set to be given the green light to be rebuilt and open on its exiting site by 2014.

It will be located nearer to Storrington Avenue and its sports hall is the only building which will be retained under the revised proposals.

It will be extended alongside neighbouring primary Our Lady of St Swithin’s to form a campus specialising in performing arts.

All three of the schemes will be rebuilt using an economic structure similar to a modern airport terminal building, which offers flexibility because the internal layout and even the entire use of the site can change in the future.

Others to get new homes include city- centre based secondary Archbishop Blanch and Sefton park secondary St Hilda’s which in separate schemes will move into new premises on sites yet to be confirmed, by September, 2015.

Also part of the masterplan is the rebuilding of St Julie’s Catholic high school.

It is set to relocate with fellow Woolton secondary St Francis Xavier’s college on the latter’s Beaconsfield campus, with a shared sixth form – opening in September, 2017.

The land St Julie’s leaves behind is intended to be sold for development.

A further £34.2m will be spent on major investment at other schools most in need that have not previously benefited.

Which schools qualify will be thrashed out at a later date.

OTHER schools set to get a slice of the £170m makeover include:

Holly Lodge girls’ college, in West Derby.

It is currently made up of 17 buildings off Queens Drive, and will be partially rebuilt through the construction of new buildings by September, 2015.

The council intends to dispose of the front half of the site which is set to be sold for high-quality houses.

Bank View special school, in Fazakerley, will be rebuilt on its existing site by September, 2015.

New Park Primary School, in Kensington, will also be rebuilt on its current Butler Street site by 2016.

Northway Primary School, in Wavertree, will also be rebuilt and expanded on its current site and utilising adjacent recreational ground.

The Department for Education have also granted funding which will enable special schools Redbridge in Fazakerley and Aigburth High to be rebuilt as early as 2014.

Lib Dem spokesperson for education and children’s services, Cllr Rosie Jolly, said: “Anything that brings investment into schools has to be applauded. We do, though, need do see how this pans out in real terms from the start of development,” she said.

The investment comes as Liverpool schools continue to thrive academically with not one school deemed to be failing.

This will be great for the area, though a part of me is saddened about any school without an outside playground. Where do they play British Bulldog?!

Sad to see that many of the assets within the CUC will not be re-used but a welcome development nevertheless.

University of Liverpool Management School wins top global accreditation

THE University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) has won recognition for the quality of its research and teaching from the world’s leading business school accreditation organisation.

The accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) means ULMS joins an elite group of institutions from around the world.

A total of 666 business schools out of 14,000 worldwide have been awarded the accreditation. There are 20 AACSB accredited schools in Britain.

The newly-won status should make a big difference to ULMS and assist it with the recruitment of students and academic staff in the future.

ULMS director Professor Murray Dalziel said: “AACSB accreditation places the Management School among the world’s best.
St Helens Chambers

“A global leader in management and leadership training, education and research, the school is a place where students, academics and organisations come together to develop and share advanced management practice.

“We enable our students to become more than good managers and great leaders. Our programmes equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to make a significant contribution in their roles and in the long term to play a part in solving some of the most endemic problems faced by individuals, companies and communities.

“We produce graduates of outstanding potential who are able to operate in the most demanding of global business environments and are truly committed to making a difference.

“It’s recognition that we satisfied a meticulous review of 21 quality standards covering things like our academics, faculty, our resources and our commitment to continuous improvement.

“It should be a signal to students and employers that we are committed to meeting those demanding standards.

“The school has grown very quickly over the last five years. Over the next five, it won’t grow as fast but we are certainly looking for better quality.

“Liverpool should have a management school as good as Manchester and London.”

Prof Dalziel said the school may seek accreditation from two other bodies over the next couple of years, including one that covers Europe and another that covers MBA courses.

Management schools at Imperial, Bradford and Cardiff also won recognition in this year’s round of AACSB accreditations.

Prof Dalziel added: “Our accreditation covers partner institutions in China and our online programme. In order to get it, we had to get a lot of collaboration globally. It emphasises we can run quality programmes globally.”

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest established global accrediting body for business schools that offer bachelors, masters, and doctorate degrees in business and accounting.

John Fernandes, president and chief executive officer of AACSB International, said: “We warmly congratulate the University of Liverpool and welcome it into the AACSB family of internationally accredited business schools.

“AACSB accreditation represents the highest achievement for an educational institution and its college of business. ULMS’ staff are to be commended for their dedication and commitment to continuous improvement, and for their role in earning initial accreditation.

“It takes a great deal of self evaluation and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation, and I commend the University of Liverpool for its dedication to management education, as well as its leadership in the community.

“Through accreditation, the University of Liverpool has not only met specific standards of excellence, but has also made a commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver high quality education to its students.”

University awarded funding to work with cultural organisations
01/03/2013 06:44

The FINANCIAL -- The University of Liverpool has been awarded funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to support internships for recently completed PhD students to work with local cultural organisations.

As the University of Liverpool said, the AHRC’s Cultural Engagement Fund will support collaborative projects that strengthen the University’s ties with regional cultural organisations including Tate Liverpool, Fact, Bluecoat, Liverpool Philharmonic, Manchester Hallé, National Museums Liverpool (NML) and the Liverpool Biennial.

Supporting arts and humanities research -- The internships will provide early career researchers with opportunities to develop a wide range of skills, particularly in relation to supporting the wider impact of arts and humanities research, and gain valuable experience of the arts and cultural sector.

The University’s Centre for Architecture and Visual Arts will work with Tate Liverpool to bring researchers and practitioners together to share current theories of gallery education and public engagement. The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology will support a curator based at NML to develop a new archaeological display aimed at improving the public’s knowledge and awareness of archaeological and anthropological artefacts.

The Department of Philosophy will evaluate and build on the philosophy of art workshops it ran for children and families during the recent Liverpool Biennial.

The University’s School of Music will work with the Liverpool Philharmonic and Manchester Hallé Orchestra to share best practice for storing and maintaining musical records, including performance recordings.

Professor Dinah Birch, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “The four projects which have been supported will provide great opportunities for early career researchers to gain first-hand experience of working in the arts and culture sector. They will also provide a means of sharing the University’s research and expertise with local cultural organisations.”

Liverpool University on the up
Global ranking of 171 in top 200 list
Written by Larry Neild. Published on March 5th.
http://www.liverpoolconfidential.co....sity-on-the-up

LIVERPOOL has climbed 10 places in the trusted world university rankings published today by Times Higher Education. The city’s redbrick establishment came in at 171st in the top 200, compared to last year’s ranking of 181. Still, Liverpool still has to catch up on its 2011 place when it stood at 165th.The eagerly-awaited rankings are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions - teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook.The list uses 13 carefully calibrated performance indicators to provide the most comprehensive and balanced comparisons available, which are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.Manchester University fell one place this year, but still managed to remain in the top 50 – coming in at 49th place. Manchester was also one of the few provincial universities in the UK to make THES’s list of rankings by reputation, coming in at 47th. Manchester has enjoyed a spectacular rise, shooting into the top 50 place last year from its 2011 ranking of 87th.Many of the other provincial universities in the UK are ahead of Liverpool in the main list, including Sheffield, Nottingham, Leeds and Lancaster.As usual universities in the USA dominate the top 10, taking seven places. The other three are UK universities, Oxford in second place, Cambridge 7th and Imperial in 8th place. California Institute of Technology retains its spot at head of the rankings, having overtaken Harvard in 2011.



I have a question about this ... does anyone know if Liverpool University has a plan on how it will rise up the global rankings? It seems to me that the city is betting a lot on the future of its students and on creating high value spin-off businesses in much the way Cambridge has done so successfully. However, set in that context a ranking of 171st in the world and outside the top 30 in the UK is most probably a sign that these establishments need to do a lot better to attract the best and brightest and to produce great quality research in more than a couple of narrow fields (eg School of Tropical Medicine). I know the university has a £600m investment plan that it is implementing over the next 5 years but I've never seen anything that specificially talked about how they intend to rise up the rankings. Anyone got any inside info or access to relevant documents?

I did find this article which talks about the £600m investment as part of a plan to improve standards (http://www.propertysurveying.co.uk/n.../?page_id=2386) and I have read the development masterplan update but it lacks specificity on the plans other than in talking up the investment in buildings. Just looking for more really ...

UPDATE
I found a 2009 article in the TES in which it said the university planned to get into the top 75 in the world by 2014 and in the top half of the Russell Group Universities in research spend per student. There seemed to be some discussion about whether that meant the university was going to focus more on the sciences. Anyway, it seems like that plan might be a little behind schedule. Here's the article ... http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/405004.article

To begin untangling your confusion, please use the link in Larry Neild's article and count down the UK universities until you find that the university of Liverpool is number 25 on the list, not outside the top 50.

In fact, rather than insult people with the above incoherent drivel, please go away, rewrite it (or have someone else do it for you), get it proof-read by another person and repost it. This drill will be good for follow for any subsequent contribution you wish to make here.

I took the UK rankings from the Guardian study which ranks Liverpool Uni at 49th.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datab...-data-guardian

There are a number of studies which use varying criteria. I think some focus more on the undergraduate experience and others more on the post-grad side. Either way, whether it's 25th, 30th or 49th I'm sure the Chancellor of the Uni would agree they are looking to move on and up.

Interesting study out today which shows the growing importance of philanthropic donations and commercial sponsorship in financing UK university research and development plans. (see below). No breakout of Liverpool University performance unfortunately but it does show that the Russell Group of universities as a whole are doing better than they have historically in this area.

Donations to universities hit record high
Charitable gifts soar to £774m as universities adopt US-style approach to fund-raising
http://www.independent.co.uk/student...h-8567897.html


Philanthropists provided record levels of funding to British universities last year, as institutions increasingly tap wealthy alumni and corporate sponsors for donations.

A study of charitable giving to universities reveals they have received £774m in donations in the past year – a rise of 14.4 per cent on the previous year's figure, itself a record, and 33 per cent up on two years ago.

Researchers say universities are adopting a US-style approach to fund-raising. In the States, Ivy League universities such as Harvard rely heavily on donations from former alumni and sponsors.

The lion's share of this year's increased funding – 45 per cent – is going to Oxford and Cambridge universities, both of whom have reached £1bn targets for fund-raising in the past two years.

Other members of the Russell Group, which represents 24 of the most research-intensive higher education institutions, were also prominent among those raising the most cash.

A breakdown in the report – prepared by the Ross Group in conjunction with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (Case) – reveals that, in addition to rising corporate donations, the number of individual donors (former university alumni) increased 5 per cent to 170,000.

The largest donation came from the Welsh-born venture capitalist Michael Moritz, who gave Oxford University £75m to help it attract more students from poorer backgrounds. The donation was described as "the biggest philanthropic gift for undergraduate financial support in European history".

The wish to help poorer students was also cited by David Ross, founder of Carphone Warehouse and a former alumnus of Nottingham University, who gave his alma mater its largest personal donation amongst £81m for a similar project.

Another major donation – £20m (described as the largest ever given to a law faculty in Britain and Europe) – came the way of King's College London courtesy of the Hong Kong businessman and philanthropist Dickson Poon for the faculty which bears his name.

On a more modest level, the University of Southampton received a £10m donation from an anonymous benefactor to go towards building a cancer immunology centre at the university – set to open in 2015.

Meanwhile, at Sheffield University, a proud tradition of charitable giving which had led to local citizens raising £50,000 in penny contributions way back in 1905 had dwindled to the extent that only six people contributed a total of about £100 by 2002.

A boost to fund-raising, though, has seen 12,000 individual donations in the past decade – raising £30m.

"It's fantastic news that we're seeing continued growth in higher education philanthropy despite wider economic pressures and the end of the Government's Matched Funding Scheme," said Kate Hunter, executive director of Case. Under the scheme, up until last year, the Government promised to match pound by pound donations from individual sponsors. A Scottish government would revive the scheme, the Scottish Nationalist Party has said.

All is not rosy throughout the sector, though, as the report also shows that six universities are paying out more for fund-raising activities than the revenue they attract in. It warns these universities will either have to improve their performance or shut down their fund-raising activities.

Tania Jane Rawlinson, director of campaigns and alumni relations at Bristol University who chairs the Ross Group, added that UK universities' approach to fund-raising "has been transformed over the past 10 years".

The authors of the report said that their findings showed that fund-raising – particularly in Oxbridge circles – was no longer "a preserve of the top US universities".


Full report findings can be found here:

Ive often wondered why the School of Tropical Med isnt trumpeted more as a jewell in Liverpools educational crown and indeed why we dont class it as one of our universities (it does after all have degree courses). It can be one of our very select, very prestigeous institutions (i cant imagine it takes on thousands of students).

Also, given the merger of the Manchester Universities-which im advised was quite a success, i wonder why The University of Liverpool and JMU at the very least have never considered any form of merger?
