“The support from the HEA has been crucial to the success of the project. Meetings provided a clear framework for our activities and prompted steps that we may otherwise have missed. Discussions with our HEA consultant have been invaluable for encouraging reflection at key stages and have ensured momentum.”
Dr Christine Rogers, Reader in Psychology and Faculty Lead for Employability, Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences, University of Manchester
How it works
Through working with the HEA you will be taken through a four stage process:
Stage 1 - Conceptualising
Designed to help you define and refine the areas of focus for the change programme. We will define what success looks like along with the outcomes you want to achieve. Our audits provide a clear overview of how key priorities are being implemented across your institution. They are aligned to the HEA frameWORKS series, providing a reference point for enhancing learning and teaching.
Stage 2 - Planning and preparation
In this stage, based on the findings of the previous stage, a project, resource and time plan will be developed aimed at providing measurable achievable outcomes. This will be a collaborative process with ongoing communication with stakeholders to determine the best model for change.
Stage 3 - Implementation, delivery and monitoring
Through the recommendations from stages 1 and 2 the programme of delivery will be implemented. This can take a number of different forms from workshops and masterclasses to curriculum design and development or a full change programme.
Stage 4 - Completion and closure
Taking the same format as in stage 1, the evaluation will provide a comparison to measure the effectiveness of the change delivered. It will also provide further insight into areas for future development. The findings can be presented in a digital report and/or presented in person.
