<strong>The Professional Learning Curve</strong>Complementing workforce development strategy

Working with the sector, the Higher Education Academy launched the Professional Learning Curve in 2016 to provide training and development opportunities for staff throughout their careers. From one-day masterclasses to year-long programmes, approaches include mentoring, action learning sets and peer support to aid formal, informal and experiential learning.

At each level, the curve provides individuals with the practical tools and skills to meet the needs of their students and institution in their roles. Programmes can be adapted and delivered flexibly with many subscribers seeking entirely bespoke versions delivered in-house that address their institutional mission. In 2016, the Higher Education Academy launched a new virtual learning environment to offer online to support busy schedules and engage national and international partners.

THE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING CURVE

The Higher Education Academy Professional Learning Curve reflects the characteristics and needs of those who teach and support learning. There are eight stages, each of which is designed to address your needs at particular points in your career. Professional development is not a linear process, so the curve has been designed to allow engagement with us when it is most relevant to you.
