Some things I’ve heard
    from you...
It’s so hard to provide
support when every unit
    looks and feels so
         different
I feel like I’m continually
 re-inventing the wheel
I’ve run great training
courses... but no one
has to come (or thinks
     they need to)
I think what we’ve done
 is really good... but I’ve
  got no way of helping
  others to do the same
By the time it gets to me, I
   feel like the important
decisions have already been
 made - and it could have
 been so muc...
Bringing that together



‣ We’re doing really great stuff:
  “pockets of excellence”
‣ The student (and staff) experience...
What that means


‣ We need clear targets & goals
‣ We need a toolkit to identify and strive
  for the highest quality

Aligned not constrained




‣ The best of what you’re doing
‣ Balancing consistency and flexibility
‣ Sharing our success

This is our opportunity
    to get this right
We’ll need to build on
  our successes,
      research,
 and best practice
