Advance HE brings us together as a sector to help tackle the ‘bigger than us’ challenges. Initiatives that support sector-wide enhancement such as Athena SWAN, the Professional Standards Framework, Race Equality Charter, and the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme, add real value and strengthen us all.
