About us

Founded by Dr Jacqui Brasted as a niche consultancy, JB HE Consulting offers support to higher education providers needing to demonstrate compliance with current higher education regulatory requirements. This includes providers who are: 

  • seeking registration that need to demonstrate how they comply with the Office for Students’ (OfS) initial conditions of registration 
  • registered with the OfS that want to retain access to benefits through complying with its ongoing conditions of registration
  • registered with the OfS facing interventions or sanctions that want to challenge the regulatory decision.

Based in Bristol, JB HE Consulting combines regulatory experience with academic and ‘Big 4’ heritage. We provide intelligent and practical solutions that are appropriate for your context in an increasingly interventionist regulatory environment.

In addition to working directly with providers, we can provide resource to regulators and professional firms that need to increase their capacity for investigations or to draw on our expertise.
