The annual programme leader symposium unites programme leaders from across the university and UK partner organisations, offering opportunities to share good practice and network.
The day always includes round table discussions enabling programme leaders to discuss challenges and share solutions, as well as a workshop to support programme leaders in their role (e.g. coaching conversations; developing negotiating skills; leadership of curriculum design).
Discussions of key topics such as student mental health and wellbeing; the Teaching Excellence Framework; increases in International student numbers; enable programme leaders to consider sector-wide issues as well as contextualising developments within their own context.
Emphasis is placed on exploring, promoting and discussing issues that emanate from the day to day practices of programme leaders and the symposium helps them to work as a community, positively enhancing the student experience, and leading change at the programme level.
