This residential programme will nurture emerging talent in higher education estates and facilities management. Delegates will hear from current estates directors and sector experts on key topical areas of estates and facilities management.
This residential is a year long programme and commitment, the learning will not stop after the residential has finished. The residential will provide a network of peers to strike up a working relationship with, which for many will be sustained into the future. Summer School will work best if its impact has longevity, so post-event there will be a written assignment, which will consist of the groups summer school highlights (c.1,200 words). The groups will then follow this paper up with an written outline of their group project surrounding a working title provided at the residential (c.3000 words). To finish off the programme there will be an 'alumni' get-together and group presentations around 6 - 8 months after the residential to ensure learning has been put into practice. The project group shown to be the most impactful will be invited to present at AUDE's conference in 2020. The class of 2018 - 2019 have finished their programme, for an insight into their learning and findings and what the group project work is, please see here.
