Course Reference: HOC-012, HFFC-021

Working in an ever changing environment has become the norm for many technicians in higher and further education. This includes restructuring of technical teams and functions, organisational initiatives and strategic goals that impact on technician teams. To operate in this new climate, technicians are expected to support, enable and, where appropriate, drive the change processes for success. However, without clear understanding of the change processes and knowledge of managing change, the change goals will all too often feel unachievable.

The course has been designed to accommodate various learning styles and to allow participants to learn from group discussions, individual reflection on the current practice. The participants will be encouraged to implement learnt skills in their work.
