Reviewing, developing and reforming teaching and learning strategies and policy

Our support encourages institutions to examine and reframe their organisational cultures to enable performance through staff expertise, supporting student success and aligning to shared strategies and goals.

Institutions, large and small, are today having to be strategically responsive to a multitude of external and internal factors, some of which can be forecast whilst others are hard, if not impossible, to predict. Taking an evidence-based approach of ‘what works’ combined with our deep sectoral knowledge and experience, we work in partnership with you to bring about impactful and lasting change with your teaching and learning strategies and policy.

We support you to foster an environment enabling productive, committed teams and individuals to thrive. We support you in the development of a strategic framework which is both stretching and adaptive, and having the mechanisms to realise your strategy.

Our aim is to embed the Advance HE Student Success Framework Series across the University, to support the broader aspects of learning and teaching in a more integrated and innovative manner. It aligns with our own Strategic Framework, which is designed to ensure our students graduate with the skills, knowledge, experience and attributes to enable them to fulfil their ambitions and make a positive contribution to the world.”

Improving student outcomes

As higher education emerges from the pandemic, we are seeing a renewed focus from governments and regulators on good student outcomes using student progression, retention and graduate outcomes as measures of good degrees and value for money. 

We can therefore expect institutions to come under further pressure from students, policy makers and funding bodies.

Advance HE is here to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and to develop strategies to improve your students’ outcomes against key sector benchmarks.
