HESA chooses partner for Data Futures programme

User-centred solution to provide the higher education sector with the ability to collect, explore and utilise their data more efficiently to be created

The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) has appointed Civica to work alongside it on its Data Futures data collection system.

Data Futures is HESA’s ambitious programme to deliver a modernised and more efficient approach to collecting data and information from more than 250 higher education providers across the UK.

Civica Digital, Civica’s newly formed digital division, will develop a user-centred solution to provide the higher education sector with the ability to collect, explore and utilise their data more efficiently. With richer insights across multiple areas including student recruitment, retention and performance, the users of HESA will be able to improve decision making and keep pace with the evolving and dynamic sector.

Adrian Crossley, Director of Technology at HESA, said: “Civica engaged very enthusiastically with us throughout the procurement. They put in significant effort to understand our business and to prototype some really exciting ideas, which they conveyed clearly and convincingly in their bid. I’m sure the Data Futures team are looking forward to working closely with them, initially to develop a detailed design by the end of July.”
