CMI HE Conference 2016.

Develop. Deliver. Succeed.

CMI's inaugural HE Conference, held at our offices in London on 9th February 2016, was a sell-out success with over 70 guests.

The overall theme of the day was how to improve student employability. Those attending included key policymakers from Government alongside HE sector regulators, university leaders, Deans and academics, business, student unions, and other interested parties.

The CMI HE Conference brought together key stakeholders with an interest in enhancing students careers and driving forward the management and leadership capability of students, and staff, in the HE sector, to share ideas and experience, forge new partnerships and collectively to reflect on how to drive excellence in delivery.

To achieve this, the one day event covered key topical issues on the Business School agenda.

The three main strands discussed of the event were:

  1. Teaching and Learning (including the new Teaching Excellence Framework and the QAA reforms & a viewpoint from the students on Teaching Excellence)
  2. The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (Download The Age of Apprenticeships white paper here)
  3. Student Employability

The day was driven through a series of panel sessions which enabled a high level of interaction between the panelists and audience. These sessions were supported by a small number of keynote speakers to provide expert opinion on the agenda. The outcome being the sharing of knowledge and best practice, plus the opportunity to network.
