Committee

As a committee, we are always looking for new ways to develop and deliver fantastic training and events for our members.

Likewise, if you are an education professional, related organisation or are not a member but work in an HEI, get in touch with any suggestions or requests. We’ll be happy to talk to you about the work we do to support HE progression across the region and any future opportunities to collaborate.
