Our work in Vietnam
Advance HE has been working with higher education institutions in Vietnam since 2020. This has included the delivery of a Teaching Skills Masterclass, in partnership with Vietnamese- German University and the World Bank, which brought together 30 academics from institutions across Vietnam to develop and enhance their online teaching practices. Advance HE has been working with the British Council to develop governance and leadership capacity in the HE sector in both Vietnam and Myanmar.
The participants have all returned to their respective universities, inspired to start using the techniques and tools so competently demonstrated by the Advance HE team, and to share their new-found knowledge and skills with their colleagues.”

Advance HE has deep contextual understanding of the challenges faced within higher education. Our expert team can provide support which is all encompassing to solutions of smaller focused interventions. We can work with you in the following ways:
Identifying your strength and challenges - Using tools such as our Curriculum Review Tool, surveys, audits, focus groups and interviews, we will work with you to provide an overview of how your institution, faculty or school is performing or perceived.
Developing strategies for sustainable change - We can support you to both develop and adapt a visionary strategy robust enough to withstand uncertainties in the external environment, but also to implement and embed strategies into action across the organisation.
Staff development programmes and workshops - Our wealth of experience, the quality of our delivery and distinctiveness is threaded through our delivery of staff development programmes and workshops.
