International Education Leadership programme (2023-24)

This bespoke and sector-leading programme is aimed at educational leaders with responsibility for driving developments in areas of strategic importance such as curriculum enhancement, student experience, education innovation, etc. Typically, these might include Directors of Study, Directors of Student Experience, and/or more substantial roles leading Education in Schools or Faculties.

The programme has been developed across four research-intensive institutions (Warwick, Monash, King’s, and LSE) to offer our education leaders a unique opportunity to gain insight into other institutions and the wider sector, including internationally.

Throughout the programme, you will learn from a broad group of peers and Higher Education specialists and leaders. This cross-institutional network will encourage you to look outside of your local contexts in order to better understand and lead within them.

The intended outcomes of the programme are twofold: enhanced effectiveness in strategic educational leadership to the benefit of the institutions involved, and the development of individual leadership capabilities. By working with an extensive network of education leaders, in and beyond the UK, the programme will support your professional development, whilst offering you the possibility to shape the future of education and the student experience in your discipline, your department, institutionally and more broadly.

Senior leadership at all four institutions will support and contribute to the strategic direction of the programme. There will also be an element of co-creation and collaborative design with participants, to ensure it is relevant and responsive to needs, expectations and priorities.

Programme Overview

Participants from the four institutions will meet online three times through the academic year on 9 November, 13 February and 9 May lasting 2.5hrs each.

In person
There will be a 3-day symposium for colleagues from all four institutions held at Madingley Hall in Cambridge, in July 2024 (date TBC).
King’s and LSE will also host four in-person workshops for participants from those two institutions on 11 October, 13 December, 6 March and 2 May, all 10am-4pm.
These sessions will be made available as optional to participants from Warwick who wish to join.

The programme will cover themes such as:
• Leadership foundations
