With the Covid-19 pandemic, there have been a multitude of changes to the ways we are working in the Higher Education sector. As we are unable to host our physical events or see each other on the road at a HE fair, school assembly or UCAS/UK Uni event, we have introduced our online webinars. These webinars will provide relevant sector updates for our members and opportunities for discussions in breakout room with colleagues across the sector. The heart of HELOA is our networking and sharing best practice and we want to offer as many opportunities to do so over the coming months.


Upcoming webinars

October 2020 – A Conversation with…

Monday 19th October

Bookings are now open for the next HELOA best practice Webinar, being held via Zoom on Monday 19th October 1pm – 3pm.

The last six months have been a rocky road for many of us in HE, and the path ahead of us isn’t exactly clear – but, as always, we can make our way through this together. HELOA has brought together a panel of senior colleagues from institutions across the country to talk through lessons learned over the last six months, and what they think could be in store ahead.  Attendees can submit a question for the panel in advance through the booking form. Attendance at the webinar is free and for HELOA members only.

Panellists include:

  • Justin Cole, Director of Marketing and Communications (Bournemouth University)
  • Sera Evans, Head of UK Student Recruitment (University of South Wales)
  • Julie Pink, Head of Schools and Colleges Liaison (University of Huddersfield)
  • Robbie Pickles, Director of Global Student Recruitment and Admissions (Keele University)

Registration is now open – book your place for the webinar using our booking form.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact the training team at training@heloa.co.uk or if you have any membership queries, please contact the HELOA office at office@heloa.co.uk.

December 2020 – Reflection 2020
