Turning Feedback into Action

Local survey results are being shared with colleges and university services leaders to allow leadership groups and their teams to undertake more detailed analysis and action planning.  Feedback will be discussed with key groups to inform and support initiatives/activities at institutional and local level.  Those key groups being:  POD Committee; Shadow Board; Engagement Working Group; Engagement Leads Network; and Campus Trade Union Representatives.

Actions we make are our collective responsibility and together, we must make it our shared goal to work together to plan and deliver the improvements that we seek.

Coming Soon… Regular updates will be communicated as we continue to analyse feedback and develop action plans.

Thank You!
