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.

MASHEIN Project Director
MASHEIN was established in 2000 and has been funded by the Leadership Foundation since 2005. MASHEIN is a network of 39 small institutions in the UK providing development and training events on a national level, specifically focused on the needs of small higher education institutions. Such institutions make a distinctive contribution to the diversity of the sector. We define 'small' as institutions with fewer than 3000 f.t.e. higher education students, and fewer than 4000 f.t.e. students overall.
We are a membership organisation of and for a sector that has some of the brightest minds in the UK.
Our members are key to our strategy and form a community of higher education institutions with a clear commitment to and experience of developing leadership, governance and management capabilities at all levels. Academic and professional services staff from member institutions contribute to our programmes, projects and research and advise on benefits and services.
