About the Leadership and Professional Development Toolkit

There’s a range of resources available to support you in the professional and administrative areas of your role as you climb the career ladder…

Some toolkit content is available to members only. For best results, make sure you’re logged in.


The Engineering Professors’ Council provides the opportunity for all academics to develop their professional network and national profile through participation in and chairmanship of a range of committees working on matters influencing national policy in higher education.  It also provides informal mentoring and support for those developing their careers with a view to taking up leadership roles in higher education and a range of comparative data and information about UK university engineering departments.


A leaflet outlining how teachers and researchers can achieve professional recognition and explaining the benefits is available from the Engineering Council. This and other relevant documents can be downloaded from the Engineering Council website. For hard copies of the leaflet email info@engc.org.uk.


The Leadership Foundation exists to support  development of management and leadership skills in “existing and future leaders in higher education”.  Its programmes range from support in understanding university finances better to courses for new heads of department.


The British Universities Finance Directors Group (BUFDG) provides a useful online forum and information digests to help you to gain a wider understanding of university finances.
