The THELMAs are now in their 10th year and are the only national awards honouring the full range of professional services and administrational talent working in universities. The awards are open to any organisation working in Higher Education.

The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held on Thursday 21 June.

Childcare Vouchers  - Deadline for Closure of the Scheme Extended


On Tuesday 13 March 2018 the Government agreed to extend the deadline for the closure of the Childcare Voucher scheme to new joiners for a further 6 months.

Prior to this we have communicated HMRC’s deadline for the closure of the University’s Childcare Voucher scheme and the action staff needed to take to meet the scheme deadline.

Following this new development we advise staff who are eligible to receive childcare vouchers to continue apply to join the scheme as normal. The Childcare Voucher Scheme will now close on 4th October 2018.

Due to the timing of the University's orders this will mean that the deadline for applying to join the scheme will be Friday 24th August 2018 in order to join the scheme for September 2018. This will enable staff to receive their
first Childcare Voucher payment on the 10th September and receive a salary deduction before the scheme closure date of 4 October 2018. 

The University will continue to monitor the situation for new developments and will advise of any further agreed changes closer to the revised deadline.

For further information including how to apply please see our webpage.
