Advance HE

Advance HE imageWe are committed to developing and improving the management and leadership skills of existing and future leaders of higher education. Wherever the opportunity arises we shall work in partnership with a range of organisations within and outside of higher education.   


Aurora is delivered by Advance HE, aimed at enabling more women to develop the leadership side of their careers and so address the under-representation of women leaders in the sector. The Aurora programme is run in partnership with universities based on workshop events, mentoring, action learning sets and self-directed learning. An opportunity to enable the sharing of best practice, insights, and experiences.

For staff who are interested in this programme, please review the Aurora information.

Please contact Amanda Mannion for more information.
