Who is the programme for?

The programme has been designed for those leading large teams or departments in higher education and related organisations. The programme is ideal for colleagues who are a head of department, centre or service in either a professional or an academic role, or for those leading a large unit or cross-disciplinary/functional project team. 

The programme is also relevant for colleagues leading teaching or research teams as part of a wider academic role and those with thematic responsibilities.


  • Rediscovering leadership in a new and changing world
  • Reconnecting teams in a new and changing world
  • Reexpressing purpose in a new and changing world

This programme was delivered brilliantly and had a great reflection on the issues surrounding Virtual and Disconnected Teams, I felt I learnt a lot of new strategies to balance my team at this difficult time.

With a focus mainly on leadership, Doug is responsible for a range of Advance HE's national open programmes as well as undertaking bespoke consultancy assignments for universities both in the UK and around the world.

I liked that the focus is leadership, just through a virtual lens. Leadership is about relationships and working remotely doesn't change that.
