The Professional Service Directors’ Programme (PSDP) is aimed at Directors and Heads of Professional Services in HE, for example Directors of Finance, Estates, HR, Student Services, IT, Research etc who have between 1 and 3 years’ experience in the role.
The challenge for those working at Director level is to demonstrate high levels of subject expertise as well as to be able to contribute to the strategic corporate agenda. This demands the ability to demonstrate strategic intelligence, effective and confident interpersonal skills and considerable self-awareness.
PSDP offers the opportunity to develop enhanced leadership skills, explore creative solutions to organisational challenges and establish a network of peers from a variety of functions.
The result is more effective leaders within organisations who have a broader and more nuanced view of how leadership within the HE sector can effectively support organisational strategy.
