New structure and remit of the Competency, Development and Training Group is outlined at USHA’s Autumn Seminar

Rachel Valentine from the University of Manchester, who is the newly appointed chair of the USHA Competency, Development and Training Group said “I found the conference of real benefit and hope the other delegates felt the same. It’s great to be part of an event where people are happy to share their learning about the innovative projects they are involved in, leading to “light-bulb” moments about something new that can be brought back into our own institutions and a sense that we are on the same page, or are facing similar challenges.”

Rachel also shared her thoughts regarding the proposed new restructure and remit of the USHA Competency, Development and Training Group that has emerged from the USHA Training Group set up in 2013. “Although the potential remit of the group is vast and changeable, I see specifically identified projects fitting into one of two work streams. Firstly, the creation of learning and development resources that can be used by universities to support the local delivery of high quality training and, secondly, support for the development of competency through guidance documentation and the development of specific frameworks. A number of initial projects are already underway and I would like to thank everyone who is already contributing to one of the project groups. I would also make a plea to anyone who is interested to get involved and help us in delivering this ambitious undertaking.”
