Invitation to a FREE JISC-funded event: Management & Adminstration for External Engagement

You and your colleagues are invited to attend a FREE workshop, exploring how external engagement is influencing the current and future role of the management and administrative functions of UK universities and colleges.

30th June: Management and Administration for External Engagement, British Library, London

Full description and booking:

This workshop is aimed at anyone with role working in a management or administrative role at any level (there is no requirement to be currently performing a specialist "engagement"-type role).


The workshop brings together staff to discuss some of the key issues emerging from engagement with the community and businesses outside of their institutions. You can find out more about what this might mean for you and how this workshop might help, here:

Attendees will get a chance to share their experiences as well as an opportunity to find out about the practical support available to help identify, understand and further develop their own external engagement strategies and actions.

The range of engagement activity types and descriptions can also make it difficult to relate them to wider initiatives which could be providing key support and funding. This workshop will help people to make those connections and more importantly, better identify support that is already taking place - but is perhaps not currently recognised.

The workshop is being delivered by JISC Netskills, through the "BCE - Awareness and Education for the Wider JISC Community" project which is specifically focused on the issues for key enabling and support services, within UK HE and FE institutions.

Find out more about the project at:

The project is itself, part of the JISC-funded "Business and Community Engagement (BCE) programme", which aims to provide practical help for institutions to develop their engagement strategies, as well as the systems to support them.
