Our sector is facing unprecedented uncertainty. It is within this context that it is essential leaders feel confident to lead with agility and plan to implement change effectively. To thrive, institutions need to develop organisational cultures which enable performance through staff expertise, supporting student success and aligning to shared strategies and goals. Authentic, inclusive leaders foster an environment supporting productive, committed teams and individuals. Important too, is the development of a strategic framework which is both stretching and adaptive, and having the mechanisms to realise this strategy.

In-house development programmes and training
Designed, developed and delivered for your institution
We offer a suite of programmes and training solutions that can be designed to meet your organisation’s requirements, developed in partnership with you and delivered to meet your needs.
For over the last 15 years we have worked with institutions and organisations all over the world to build and deliver effective programmes and training to address the challenges that they face, or enhance their operations.
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.
Supporting the success of Access and Participation Plans (APPs)
We focus on working with you as a critical friend and informed partner to enhance and reflect on your approach to inclusion across the student lifecycle. We recognise however that the new APP approach – centred on long-term targets, an evaluation culture, and a focus on ambitious engagement with issues such as ‘race’ equity, disability, and social mobility – presents complex challenges which may need specific support to tackle.
We have worked with a number of institutions to support cultural change in their contexts:
