How we work with you
We work with you to define and refine the areas you wish to focus on. We will ask you:
- what does success look like?
- what are the outcomes you are trying to achieve?
- how can we help you achieve this?
- what are the time frames you are working to?
Our approach is then to provide you with insights on your area of focus through a number of tools and techniques:
- Qualitative and quantitative research
- Guided reviews at institutional, faculty, school or individual level
- On-site visits
- Benchmarking against national frameworks
Our Consultancy Team has worked with a range of higher education institutions, including:
The HEA has a number of services which can be undertaken at a school, faculty or institutional level to help you to identify key strengths and opportunities for improvement against your KPIs:
Audits for student success
Our audits are diagnostic tools which provide a clear overview of how key thematic priorities are being implemented across your institution. They are aligned to the HEA frameWORKS series, providing a national reference point for enhancing learning and teaching.
The audits are designed to be undertaken by senior leaders, programme leaders and individual practitioners and can be based on a range of themes determined by you.
- Understand and enhance the student academic experience and student engagement at course, faculty and institution-wide levels
- Benchmark performance year on year within your institution and in comparison to your peers
- Pinpoint where interventions are most needed for student success in your priority areas, including assessment and feedback, employability and student retention
