SPI Administrators’ Forum – join us online on 15 December

Back in July, we hosted our first ever virtual Admin Forum. Thank you to those of you who listened, queried, challenged and gave us feedback - you all helped to contribute towards a session we hope you found really useful.

What's new for December

Image of computer with Christmas accessories nearbyWe listened to your comments in the summer and we've made the decision to host Term 1's Forum live, using Microsoft Teams, on Tuesday 15 December. You'll be able to ask questions and receive answers as we go along - so please come prepared to jot down notes and type out anything you might wish to clarify.

On the agenda

We're finalising the agenda at the time of writing (30 November), but we're planning to discuss the following topics:

  • Where we're up to - what's new?
  • Universal Admissions
  • Scholarships & Bursaries
  • Mitigating Circumstances
  • Assessment Processes
  • Module Selection
  • Learning Analytics
  • Business as usual - how will the transition work?
  • The Digital Strategy Group - guest slot from James Alexander, Digital Strategy & Transformation Director

A festive Forum

We love a good festivity in the SPI team - if you've attended Forums face-to-face in the past, you'll know we can't resist a theme. With that in mind, please do attend in Christmassy attire if you'd like to. We'll be decked out in winter jumpers, Santa hats and the like - with seasonal snacks nearby, as per the Admin Forum norm - and we'd love you to join us.

See you on Tuesday 15 December from 10am to 12pm. If you haven't received an invitation to the Forum, please email
