  • CL: Setting the scene for session / objectives / introductions (either to full group or two mins on each table/with neighbours if large group)
    Introduce format of session – plenary start and finish, three parallel exercises focusing on practical application of the framework at individual, team and institutional level. Need to decide which you wish to attend. If more than one person from same institution would make sense to split up.
    Show of hands – how many for individual, how may for team, how many for institutional?

  • JS … so let’s have a look at how it was developed. History.
    On the right-hand side are the starting points.
    We looked at Council for Administration National Occupational Standards for Business & Administration, and the Chartered Management Institute National Occupational Standards for Management & Leadership
    We looked at various competency/capability frameworks across the sector, including the HEA Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education, we also looked at frameworks in other public and private sector organisations
    The AUA’s Code of Professional Standards existed at that time – this has now been updated to the AUA’s Values
    (click) on the left-hand side are the things that the project added. We surveyed all HEIs (42% response rate) to get their views and find out existing practice, and sent the draft framework to them for consultation
    We had input from 7 professional bodies, including ARMA, AUDE, UPA (now UHR), AHUA …
    We held workshops and focus groups across the UK – total of 96 members of administrative staff
  • JS: Not ‘what’ needs to be done in a role, but ‘how’ it needs to be done
    As much emphasis on strengths as on areas for development
    Applies to all administrative roles at all levels – some HEIs are considering applying it to academic roles as well
    The behaviours are universal and apply to all roles, but of course some are more important than others
    The behaviours are split into three areas:
    Self – behaviours that can be observed whatever the situation (hence they apply to us all)
    Others – behaviours that can be observed when interacting with / influencing / managing others
    Organisation – behaviours that can be observed when influencing at organisational level or representing the organisation
  • JS: So, what does the framework add?
    JD / PS – we’re all used to these tell us what needs to be done and what the skills & knowledge are essential to do the role
    CPD adds the how and together these three docs provide a comprehensive picture …
  • JS: bringing it up to date
  • RB: Moving on to the group work exercises. Catherine already explained three groups – individual, team and institution. Encourage fairly even numbers.
    Announce facilitators of each group – 2 mins to move round room
  • RB: very brief (2 mins) so that all delegates know what other groups will be doing and that all will be taking a similar approach within a slightly different context which brings different challenges and opportunities
  • RB: Benefits of AUA to individuals, institutions and the sector. Keep this visible during group work for inspiration and prompting if necessary.
    Safety in numbers
    Of the sector, for the sector
    Coherent support for workforce development and talent management
    Community of practice
  • RB: each group feeds back on key learning points. Use flipchart to capture main points.
  • CL Closing comments. AUA CPD framework web page + other resources
    Feedback about this session
  • CL - with all to answer depending on question
