Vicky Bosward Senior HR Business Partner, Edge Hill University.
The delivery of our consultancy and enhancement service follows a four-step process, designed to implement a cycle of continuous improvement.
We start by benchmarking your performance via our range of diagnostic tools. This can be done face-to-face and/or online.
To build a programme for success, a project plan will be created based on objectives, resource and time, and includes monitoring and evaluation methods.
In order to make change happen, the skills and knowledge we deliver are designed to help you embed your priorities to create sustainable change.
Measuring your success will be carried out by an end of project evaluation to help you determine the impact of the project and agree the next steps following project completion, ensuring your key deliverables are met in order to implement change.
Projects are cost effective and delivered as a focused period of activity – usually six months. They are grounded in sharing excellent practice, developing innovative approaches and assessing the impact of change.
Institutions involved in the collaborative projects benefit from focused support on key issues, a safe space to share challenges and build networks of support and implement meaningful change.
Collaborative projects currently open include:
In-house development programmes and training
Designed, developed and delivered for your institution

Our programmes develop leaders equipped to address some of the key challenges facing institutions, enhance the teaching and learning capability and tackle the method by which your institution addresses equality, diversity and inclusivity at all levels.
