AMOSSHE National Conference 2021
AMOSSHE The Student Services Organisation is dedicated to the professional development of Student Services leaders in UK higher education. In the 2020/21 academic year Student Services and sector colleagues have responded to unprecedented challenges with energy, creativity and commitment. Supporting and enhancing the student experience is the key driver of all this hard work, and AMOSSHE’s role is to support and enhance the professional excellence of this mission. The AMOSSHE National Conference 2021 is an opportunity to reflect on this year’s good practice, establish strategic connections, and take our achievements forward.
The conference is an inspirational, collaborative space for Student Services leaders to share expertise and good practice, develop strategy and skills, and build professional networks. The key themes for this conference are reflections, connections and ambitions:
- Reflections – let’s take time to review what has taken place in higher education during the year, including our understanding of the student experience, and how different kinds of students have been impacted in new and unexpected ways. Let’s evaluate and appreciate the innovative work that Student Services teams have undertaken, adapting quickly and flexibly to the demands created by the pandemic and emerging sector issues.
- Connections – the impact of the pandemic, as well as social movements such as campaigns to tackle racism, inequality and sexual harassment, have emphasised the importance of collaboration and networks. It’s vital to ensure that our students and colleagues are connected and meaningfully engaged. Let’s identify how Student Services can work with colleagues and communities within and outside higher education through co-creation, evidence-based understanding and action learning.
- Ambitions – let’s look forward to the future of Student Services, drawing on all we’ve learned and the connections we’ve made. What are our strategic ambitions as Student Services leaders? How can we leverage the high-profile attention on our work this year to establish innovative approaches and responsive services that enhance and develop students? Let’s consider how we further establish ourselves as positive, proactive leaders, developing skills and finding solutions.
