Recently leadership at every level in higher education has been tested as never before and the need to support leaders is all the more important. Leadership is enhanced through preparation and continuous development to meet those tests head on. Our aim is to support your institution by equipping your leaders so that they lead with an assured confidence, characterised by agility, innovation and inclusivity.
Our strategic leadership portfolio will support the development of a strategic outlook and skillset to lead across organisational boundaries.

A legacy of our work in strategic leadership includes the flagship Top Management Programme for Higher Education, the Race Equality and Athena Swan Charters tackle issues of inequality and our student academic and research surveys highlight and benchmark the student experience.
We bring this understanding to our portfolio of strategic leadership services that use rich and immersive experiential learning delivered by facilitators from inside and outside HE with a deep and enduring knowledge of its wonders and challenges.
Top Management Programme for Higher Education
Developing senior leaders in higher education
A development opportunity specifically created for those in an executive role in a higher education institution. Over 60 of the current UK Vice-Chancellors and Principals are TMP HE alumni, with many of the other past participants of TMP HE holding some of the most senior posts throughout higher education.
The challenges facing higher education both in the UK and internationally continue to grow in their scale and complexity; this emphasises the need for institutions to have confident, forward thinking and effective executive leadership with the agility and innovation to respond.
Executive leaders also need space and opportunity to think differently and build effective networks, skills and insights to sustain their roles and contribution for both their personal benefit and be a fully contributing member of the Executive team.
Strategic Leadership Programme
Developing flexible and resilient leaders
Leadership and in particular the development of leaders in uncertain political and financial times has never been so much of a priority to the higher education sector.
The Strategic Leadership Programme aims to build flexible and resilient leaders, capable of delivering large-scale change, by providing opportunities to share insights, work with a support network of peers and reflect on leadership styles and frameworks for life beyond the programme.
