This short course on Leadership for Internationalisation, developed by Cardiff Metropolitan University, provides the theoretical background and operational tools for Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors and Programme Coordinators in the Philippines to develop and to implement a strategic plan for the Internationalisation of their universities.
The programme is a collaboration between the British Council and the South Manila Education Consortium (SMEC).
The component programmes are designed for senior leaders to develop leadership skills to help enhance the internationalisation of their universities. Each programme will introduce the range of opportunities afforded by internationalisation, and assist in incorporating internationalisation into the university’s overall vision, mission and strategic planning as well as with the implementation of an international strategy, including transnational education. Each will explore the components of successful international partnerships. Those attending will be assisted in identiifying the key features of a strategy and implementation plan for development which will be appropriate within their institutions or departments. Each programme is also designed to help participants develop their leadership skills so their university can function effectively internationally.
The suite comprises 3 individual programmes. One for Presidents, one for Vice-Presidents and one for Directors and programme coordinators. The objectives are the same but the material is treated in a way that is appropriate to the different roles and experience level of the 3 cohorts.
