Recent Developments in Relation to Professional Staff in UK Higher Education
Whitchurch, Celia; Skinner, Maureen; Lauwerys, John
Australian Universities' Review, v51 n1 p56-60 2009
This paper reviews three developments relating to professional staff in UK higher education. The first of these is a major report undertaken for the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE), which has re-conceptualised the activities of professional staff within a theoretical framework of identity (Whitchurch, 2008a). The other two projects seek practical ways forward for this group of staff, the first via a Continuing Professional Development Framework developed by the Association of University Administrators (AUA); and the second via the publication of case material on career pathways, prepared on behalf of the association of Heads of University Administration (AHUA) and the LFHE.
