Views from our partners
“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
“The main benefit was the rigour to the training session that the HEA consultant provided. This made participants feel more confident. The HEA consultant was excellent - she facilitated the session extremely well, dealing with queries and questions effectively and utilising her extensive knowledge of the process.”
Dr Kerry Dobbins Professional Development Adviser, University of Leicester
“It’s really important that students aren’t just seen as passive consumers of their education but as partners. The [UK] Engagement Survey really puts their engagement with their studies at the heart of that.”
