Stamp Out in HE
Information and materials on the Stamp Out campaign specific to HE.
The figures in the tables below have been compiled from HESA (the Higher Education Statistical Agency) and are the latest figures available for HE academic staff on fixed-term and open-ended contracts. They show wide variations in how staff are employed in different institutions. Have a look for your institution's figures and compare them with others - they can be very useful for campaigning, for example by showing how comparable institutions have reduced the use of fixed-term contracts.
