4 Background: What is Healthy FE? PeopleHealthy FE is a programme focused on addressing the health and wellbeing needs of staff and students.ServicesHealthy FE builds on current health and wellbeing-related activities by adopting an organisation-wide approach.PartnershipPartnership on both strategic and local level is required: Health Commissioners and Local Authority plus other health organisations in the community."The Healthy Education Framework is an aspirational model aimed at creating a future where FE and skills sector providers have strong relationships with community partners to create a learning environment where positive wellbeing is the expectation for all, producing students and staff who are confident, healthy, safe, emotionally resilient and personally fulfilled." (Healthy FE Steering Group, December 2008)This is a sector-led framework that is developed by and for FE and skills sector providers:It is for you to identify what is wanted by your staff and students, and what can be delivered by them (in collaboration with community partners) as part of their mainstream business.It should not seek to create new infrastructure and processes, but should make use of and develop your existing arrangements wherever possible (hence providers want us to focus on health in the broader context of 'wellbeing').

The tool will also aid in the monitoring of performance in these areas over time, with corresponding evidence gathered to establish distance travelled.
6 What is driving the impact? Health outcomesImproving health outcomesReducing inequalitiesLocal needsJoint Strategic Needs AssessmentLocal Authority and PCTCollege activityStaff and studentsOrganisationalPerformance and financialHealth outcomes operate on both a national level, across various segments of the population, and at a more local level.You can expect to see improvements in your own organisation’s measurable outcomes within the first year. These outcomes impact on the college in terms of performance, productivity, financial benefits etc. They will influence wider health outcomes, which are measured at a national and regional level across the whole population.You will have a record of your improvement over time if you use the tools available and monitor the indicators and outcomes that are most relevant to your Healthy FE programme.

This includes observable enhancements of the college and its partner services through stronger infrastructure, needs-led policies and increased participation in health initiatives.
9 What financial (ROI) benefits have others seen? “From a staff perspective, healthy college has contributed significantly to reducing staff absenteeism to just over 3%, a saving for Bradford College against any national public sector benchmark of at least £390k.Financial Director, Bradford College”“From a student perspective improved diets and eating patterns have helped keep students alert which in turn has contributed to improved success rates, this impact has resulted in a £700k increase in our funding contract.Jane Marshall, Healthy College Manager, Bradford College”
10 What partnership benefits have others seen? “The Healthy FE process, through promotion from Dudley PCT has assisted the college in developing its health agenda and move it on from an ad-hoc approach to establishing a college-wide health and wellbeing support structure. One of the key changes that has arisen from participating in Healthy FE has been the development of very strong and supportive relationships with the local community PCT and the local health agencies in the Dudley area.Jane Langford, Dudley College”“The sharing of best practice and innovative ideas with other colleges is supported by taking on the role of regional coordinator and the collaborative relationships that have been formed. These relationships are not only local in the community but across other counties and colleges.Hartpury College”
11 What performance benefits have others seen? “The purpose of increasing physical activity levels in the FE setting was not to focus on increasing physical activity from a sports aspect, instead to look at it from a holistic view, with physical activity incorporating a wide range of activities that boost fitness levels, self-esteem and the confidence levels of individuals involved.Wayne Dyble, Grantham College”Student attendance rates increased year on yearStudent gym usage increased by 15% and staff usage by 8%Physical activity in students across the board increased by 33%
