Along with the rest of the sector, Advance HE is adjusting to the challenging times in which we all find ourselves. We are determined to support our members by delivering as much as possible online and maintaining the best possible, flexible service.
We are currently reviewing our portfolio of in-house development programmes and will update these pages with new developments.
This suite builds on many of our successful open programmes and events and generally focuses on specific skillset development in areas such as EDI best practice, finance, team leadership and cuts across Advance HE’s core areas of activities.
Each workshop and programme builds on Advance HE’s global experience of delivering effective development and is based on current best practice with the aim of supporting staff in their current roles and tackling the current HE landscape challenges. Many of our EDI workshops for example are created to support institutions with implementation of current government policy across the nations.
How are the programmes delivered?
Each programme or workshop has a set agenda, price and delivery method and will be delivered by an expert facilitator(s) currently practising in their field. The price includes a briefing between the client and the facilitator to ensure that the development objectives for the institution are met and that the content is contextualised to the current institutional context.
