Good place to work

Strong commitment to students;

Valuable education … pride

Want clarity about priorities

Career development

R & T disconnected; R not prioritised

Lack of senior team visibility

Want clarity about DM

League tables – real disappointment

  • Enthusiastic committed staff

  • Good pedagogic innovation

  • Research / industrial engagement

  • Strong TN profile

  • Income flat lining

  • International students here low

  • R – T Links fractured?
