Leadership solutions for a changing world

The Education Sector is going through a period of intense change.  Universities and Colleges are open to increased scrutiny, whilst facing significant commercial challenges and uncertain times. All this is adding pressures on its leaders – they need to find new solutions for a changing world.

At Wickland Westcott, we combine first-hand knowledge and experience to provide leadership insight and support at a senior level across Universities, Further Education Colleges and Multi-Academy Trusts. In addition to commissioning and undertaking research our services include:

  • Coaching, team development and leadership assessment as well as designing and delivering tailored programmes around cultural or performance change.
  • Partnering with clients to find and appoint senior positions including NEDs, CEOs, Senior Academic Leaders, Functional Heads and Directors of Professional Services.

Leadership Development

At Wickland Westcott, we believe Leaders are made, not born. They are fashioned by their experiences, their environment and the people they meet. We provide proven ways to enhance and accelerate leadership development. As such, we are delighted to share that we have designed a Leadership Competency Framework specifically for Leaders in the Education sector.
