COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 28 December.


Decree (1): Delegation to Council's Personnel
Committee of
the power to make decrees creating fixed-term university lecturerships

Explanatory note

Council has agreed, on the recommendation of its Personnel Committee, to make a decree
creating a fixed-term University Lecturership in Computer Science (see Decree (3) below).
The committee has suggested, and Council has agreed, that the power to make such decrees
in future should be delegated to the committee, and the following decree provides
accordingly.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. II, Sect. I, § 19, cl. 3 (c) (Statutes,
2000, p.
232, as inserted by
Decree (1) of 9 November 2000, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 306), after
`proposed
amendment' delete `.' and substitute `;'.

2 Ibid., insert item (d):

`(d) the creation of a fixed-term university lecturership in a case in which
a
divisional board or the body responsible for another spending sector proposes to set up such
a post in a situation other than that of replacing a member of staff on leave or covering
emergency teaching needs.'

Decree (2): Tutors and Associate Tutors in General
Practice

Explanatory note

For many years part-time Tutors in General Practice have been appointed to provide teaching
for medical students within general practices. The tutors are no longer paid and, instead, the
general practice receives remuneration through the SIFT scheme. In these circumstances it
is
thought more appropriate that the title be changed to remove `part-time' and that it be given
by conferment rather than appointment. The following decree, made by Council on the
recommendation of its Personnel Committee and of the Medical Sciences Board, provides for
the conferment of the title Tutor in General Practice. It also introduces the title of Associate
Tutor in General Practice, which may be conferred on other members of a general practice
that provides educational support to the medical students.

Text of Decree (2)

In Ch. VII, Sect. V (Statutes, 2000, p. 529), delete § 8 and substitute:

`§ 8. Tutors and Associate Tutors in General Practice

1. Tutors in General Practice shall be appointed by the Medical Sciences Board on
such
terms as to duties and tenure as the board may determine, subject to the following conditions:

(1) the title Tutor in General Practice may be conferred, on the recommendation of
the
Head of the Department of Primary Care, on any general practitioner making a substantial
contribution to undergraduate teaching;

(2) the title shall be conferred for an indefinite period, subject to continued substantial
involvement in undergraduate teaching and satisfactory performance in routine teaching
quality assessments; review shall be based on an assessment of teaching quality by the Head
of the Department of Primary Care.

2. The Medical Sciences Board's Appointments Committee may also, on the
recommendation of the Head of the Department of Primary Care, confer the title of Associate
Tutor in General Practice on any appropriately qualified person involved in regular
undergraduate teaching in general practice, subject to the following conditions:

(1) the appointment shall be held only for as long as the person appointed continues
to
contribute substantially to undergraduate teaching of high quality in general practice;

(2) the title shall be conferred for as long as the person continues to contribute
substantially to undergraduate teaching of high quality in general practice; review shall be
based on an assessment of teaching quality by the Head of the Department of Primary Care.'

Decree (3): Appointment of fixed-term University
Lecturer
and Associate Technical Director (Development) in e-Science

Text of Decree (3)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. VII, Sect. IV, § 3, cl. 3 (ii)
(Statutes, 2000, p.
518), a University Lecturer in Computer Science and Associate Technical Director
(Development) in e-Science may be appointed for a fixed period not exceeding five years in
the first instance.

PLANNING AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION
COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has made the following decree,

Explanatory note

Following the review of the Centre for Criminological Research conducted by the Social
Sciences Board, the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has approved
a proposal to establish a Professorship of Criminology to replace the existing Readership in
Criminology. The following decree establishes this professorship.

3 Ibid., Sect. III, concerning particular professorships (p. 411,
as
renumbered by Decree (1) of 26 April 2001 and Decree (1) of 7 June 2001,
