  • Delighted to be a part of the NUH as Passionate about the developing good leadership skills at an early stage
  • An indepen. Charity est 38 yrs ago - to support the dev of leadership skills and capabilities with 3rd sector – such as malawi project and UK schools Impactful leadership dev – based on research to ensure the learning is embedded and actually makes a differenceBy melding the intellectual journey with an emotional journey – to ensure the learning is embedded
  • Doesn’t every graduate already have these?! – not according to CBI survey with employersin 2011: (and includes application of numeracy and IT)45% felt dissatisfied with grad level of awareness of customers and business 25% grads low ability to self manage20% grads with low team working skills and no approach to solving problemsBuilding on this is – conflict resolution within team working Feedback from org such as: PWC, National Grid, ABF, - all share horror stories – even now re: intake of grads with:= poor attitude – using mobile on selection dayTurning up in trainers Not able to write a business sense think they’ll be CEO in 2 years think the org owes them a living – no flex on location, tasks etc High performing School leavers have a better attitude - and are requested by Depts in place of Grad’sGen Y syndrome with existing line mgers in org’s
  • Building on this is: The New Uni Herefordshire will: Equip graduates who leave to be globally employable: with a strong knowledge around their domain expertise of their degree with the unique added value of being aware of what the world of full time employment means Become that newly appoint graduate in org – on fast track to mgt roleBe an individual contributor / team memberor continue with their educationM’ging self: But with a positive attitude, more awareness of how they react under pressure, the impact they have on others, Working in teams: how to handle relying on others to achieve a task - conflict resolution when at work, study or personal life: real projects – working with employers to bring the fresh thinking and creativity that grads have – to support employers in tackling wicked problems and sharing their enhanced IT skills Working in org’s: achieving valuable outputs form work placements in final year All of which will build confidence, awareness, presentation skills – written, verbal – (chemistry grad who had never made a presentation) The Learning Process Across the degree programme we propose a blend of: Two three-day experiential learning residential courses (in Modules 1 and 2)One day workshops on themes proposed in the Module outlines below (Modules 1-3)Speakers from the world of work (Modules 1-3)Completion of a learning journal (Modules 1-3)Work placement that is supported by learning from all three modules.Work-based mentoring during their work placement (Module 3)
  •  appropriate to start this journey by exploring and better understanding oneselfWhat are their values, help them to better understand who they are, what they want to be - their career aspirationsReviewing their image and personal impact As well as How to manage themselves, build confidence and a positive attitude and resilience All vital attributes to building work ready graduates and better organisational citizens
  • An under-grads experience thus far will be driving towards individual performance and learning as opposed to operating in a team – when team members don’t do what they said they’d do Understanding different roles in a team and the under grads role within the team dynamic Opportunity – for them to lead a team to complete a task under real work environment pressures – eg the objective and timescales keep changing!Understand the diversity within teams and be equipped to with itFrustration of under grads in South coast Uni – asked to undertake a task as a group and could not understand why team members didn’t show up for agreed mtgs or complete their actions in time – ended in tears...
  • An element that many graduates going into the workplace are completely unaware of – is how org’s tick – what makes them work and how do you operate within a defined structureThis module would sit alongside the work placement and be based on academic models but more importantly on the practical element – of the reality of being in an organisation The different org’al cultures, how communications happen, how its structured, how are decisions made So the opportunity to learn about it – experience it and reflect on that experience – with a Business mentor to guide them thruThus ensuring a real unique aspect to the New Uni Herefordshire degrees – graduates who are work ready and able to contribute positively from day 1

    6. 6. We have begun a journey . . .  To develop and deliver globally employable undergraduates  To support the economic needs of Herefordshire for the remainder of the 21st century  To build a new type of university that blends the best traditions of teaching and learning with the power of technology – fit for the 21st century

    9. 9. We’ve learned a lot . . .  H.E. technology and innovations are exploding  The H.E. world has been shaken  Herefordshire is disproportionately ready  There is universal agreement on the value and potential impact of an additional, well- designed, unique higher education institution offering world class instruction, based in Herefordshire – and built from scratch
    10. 10. What we envision . . .  Building on a platform consisting of: • Close collaboration with the existing £30+million further and higher education economy of the county • Close relationships with the county’s existing businesses, Enterprise Zone & LEP • Purposeful, win/win integration with the broader economic development of the county 1
    11. 11.

    12. 12.

    15. 15. What we envision . . .  Course content building on and integrating with the local and regional economy  Lines of study linked globally, yet individually customizable (in terms of time-line and content) – student by student – through the use of new educational technology (MOOCs) 5
    16. 16.

    19. 19. What we envision . . .  Facilities focusing on the local economy throughout the County – Classrooms: Primarily repurposing existing city, market town and county infrastructure – Library: A public/private project – Student Accommodation: Inward investment – Administration: Existing infrastructure and asset transfer – Research: In collaboration with industry sponsorship 9
    20. 20. What we envision . . .  Funding – £2-£3 million seed corn funding in 2014 – £35-£50 million in financing over 3-4 years – Integrating resources from social capital market, private individual investment, public sector asset transfers, and industry sponsorship 10
