Our four strands of expertise
We believe improvement in HE is continuous; to advance the sector, for the better. Advance HE was created to provide dedicated support to the higher education sector across four key interrelated themes: governance, leadership, teaching and learning, and equality, diversity and inclusion. These areas are all crucial to the wellbeing and effective delivery of higher education now and in the future.
Our purpose is to support universities in putting institutional strategy into practice for the benefit of students, staff and society. We bring together HE-focused expertise in governance, leadership, teaching and learning, and equality, diversity and inclusion, to help you to deliver world-leading teaching, research and scholarship, your civic mission and student outcomes at your institution. We do this through the provision of specialist knowledge and resources, externally recognised benchmarking and recognition schemes, and a member-focused, collaborative approach.
Advance HE has long standing experience and expertise to support governing bodies across the UK to aid with board effectiveness, governor development, strategic sessions and wider support for the governance community.
