Leadership Development Programme: A programme for academic leaders in small and specialist HEIs
As the only leadership programme at this level developed for those working in the small institution setting, it takes full account of the specific challenges associated with this environment as well as engaging with the wider higher education landscape. The course offers participants the opportunity to examine their role and leadership style, develop their strategic understanding and skills in relation to organisational mission, and engage in career planning. The programme is developed in consultation with each cohort rendering it flexible and responsive to their particular development needs.
