Leadership and in particular the development of leaders in uncertain political and financial times has never been so much of a priority to the higher education sector.
The Strategic Leadership Programme aims to build flexible and resilient leaders, capable of delivering large-scale change, by providing opportunities to share insights, work with a support network of peers and reflect on leadership styles and frameworks for life beyond the programme.
The programme develops the practical tools and insight required to successfully lead within a senior team, working collaboratively across and outside the organisation. It will prepare you for the necessary step-change in thinking required when aiming for the Senior Management Team in the near future.
Leading Transformation in Learning and Teaching (designed jointly by the Leadership Foundation and the Higher Education Academy) is the leadership programme to develop, enhance or transform learning and teaching programmes and courses in higher education. The process by which university programmes are transformed, or freshly developed, to meet new needs, expectations and demands will be the main theme.
This programme will provide the opportunity for a more extended learning experience interspersed with time for both reflection and the application of ideas. The full programme builds towards a Transformation Pilot, a project of your own undertaken back in your own institution with the support of a third one-day workshop (Module Three) and two facilitated on-line action-learning sets. This highly applied approach is also supported by a Reflection and Action Planning Booklet that follows the course structure, provides a framework for recording actions, reflections and intentions, and suggests further reading and resources. With the support of your insitution this can provide a very strong piece of evidence to build towards an application for professional recognition against Descriptor 3 of the UK Professional Standards Framework.
Small, specialist and independent providers are an important part of the increasingly diverse higher education system in the UK. Run in conjunction with GuildHE, this event will explore some of the governance issues and challenges facing such institutions, including the strategic positioning of institutions and achieving good governance. The event will encourage participant networking and the sharing of best practice.Find out more »
