BECOMING SELF-SUFFICIENT is the priority of this small York-based agency, set up 10 years ago to boost university teaching standards: the grant it has relied on ends in 2016-17. The uncertainty has had a demoralising effect on the 97 staff, but they say their managers care about them as individuals (80% positive) and talk openly and honestly with them (77%). www.heacademy.ac.uk
