Faculty TLSE


Key changes

  • A new, dedicated scheduling team will be introduced at a Faculty level, supporting the move of timetabling to a centre-Faculty model. Faculty Scheduling teams will manage when teaching and learning activities take place, and in what spaces/rooms on campus, with input from Schools. This increased coordination will mean students receive their timetables earlier in the academic year, have a timetable that better meets their needs including lunch breaks and other wellbeing considerations, and have fewer adjustments to their timetables once published.
  • Additional, dedicated resource is introduced to support recent growth in Appeals Complaints and Discipline.
  • There is an increased focus on supporting different student groups, as required through the Access and Participation Plan, with a strong alignment between the Access and Success team in the DSE, Faculties and School teams.
  • Importantly, there are recognised differences, with specialist roles in different Faculties – focussed resource for Fitness to Practice activity in FBMH and Foundation Studies in FSE, for example.
  • Structures and job descriptions are aligned across Schools, Faculties and the DSE – so it will be really clear who does a similar role in another area.
  • This will enable Communities of Practice to be formed. Faculty TLSE teams will be part of a wider, cross University community of professionals, solving issues collectively and learning from each other’s practice.
  • A consistent way of delivering services across Faculties will reduce over-reliance on individuals (‘single points of success or failure’).
