Governor Development Programme (GDP)

The programme is designed to support Governors in all HE institutions throughout the UK and various events are held throughout the year.

This year’s governor development programme and linked activities, has as its theme Governance to 2020 and beyond: Improving Effectiveness for a New Age. It allows participants the opportunity to anticipate and evaluate the impact of change, while offering practice support and advice about how to successful navigate the changes. In addition to focusing on a changing policy environment, the topics GDP covers have been updated based on your feedback.

College-based Higher Education Providers

College-based higher education (CBHE) providers are faced with distinctive challenges to their governance structures and effectiveness, arising from having to operate to two regulatory regimes – further and higher education – which are markedly different in their needs.

In response to demand Advance HE has initiated a collaborative project with the Mixed Economy Group. This will bring CBHE providers together to jointly focus on establishing stronger HE governance in CBHE providers and the development of a CBHE governance framework for the wider sector.
