Following the recent Performance For All (PFA) Academic Workload Management working groups (chaired by Professor Terry Threadgold) attended by over 30 universities and the work currently underway with a number of other universities, it has become clear that it would be helpful for institutions to have access to some assistance to provide an impartial experienced view of how they might move forward with their own Academic Workload projects.
Based on the high level of interest in this assistance and in recognition of the importance of Academic Workload Planning and Management to the sector, PFA have agreed provide funding to reduce the cost to those institutions wishing to take advantage of Terry’s expertise.
The PFA supported work consists of a two day engagement which will be tailored to the specific needs of each institution but generally would include:
Discussions with key stakeholders to establish the current status and perceptions of the Workload Project.
Identification of the processes, activities, and stages which would be required to move from the assessed starting point to the desired outcome for the project.
Production of an independent report (1) to support those taking the project forward internally and (2) to provide the credibility with senior teams and other internal stakeholders that comes from an independent assessment.
PFA are supporting half of the cost of the engagement reducing it to £900.
