Academic Partnership

Access to dedicated, longer term support from an experienced lead consultant with specialist knowledge in your field

Better insights, better decisions

These are exceptional times. When the speed and intensity of change is this fast, it can be hard to remain objective, impartial and rigorous. That’s where becoming an Academic Partner can help.

As an outstanding University Institute we are committed to sharing and facilitating learning. Our Academic Partnership programme provides dedicated and bespoke expert support over the longer term so that you can make best use of our applied research and evaluation, consultancy and training expertise.

This is what one of our IPC Partners has to say about the programme.

“We brought IPC into the space around our Home Care offer, to support and hold us to account whilst helping providers with a new world look at Home Care based on outcomes rather than task and time. It’s worked brilliantly.

Working with IPC over a two-year period, gave us the opportunity to test and learn with the local market. It gave us a chance to try out something completely new with very little risk. It was the best thing we could have done. It has helped us shape the market and make a fundamental change in our ways of doing things. The market is now very engaged.

IPC effectively held up a mirror, to reflect the issues that existed. They also acted as a buffer between ourselves and providers, facilitating challenging conversations.

IPC acted as mediators, negotiators, advisors, facilitators and specialists and shared their extensive knowledge of good practice along the way.

The value of being an IPC partner is immense.”
