It has been a privilege to take part in a programme that offers the opportunity to work alongside management, academics and administrators to build a new future for the university. These are challenging times and it was a good team building experience.
Do you want the option to save money by running programmes in-house with other local HEIs? We can help organise this.
In these trying financial times it isn't always appropriate for staff to be away from their desks for too long. Money has to be carefully allocated and well spent.
We have worked with groups of universities in the same region and with similar requirements to provide in-house programmes for their staff. This has allowed them to train a number of staff at one time, without excessive expenses. Participants have the benefits of discussions with other universities without the need to travel huge distances.
How does this work?
A good example of universities working together in this way are the tailored in-house programmes we delivered jointly for Newcastle and Durham. Both universities had the same requirement - to develop a leadership programme for newly appointed academic leaders. They combined their resources and subsequently we have successfully delivered five cohorts of this programme, with the sixth cohort being planned to be delivered in this academic year.
