As School Support Enhancement Leads we are responsible for leadership and management across S3 to continuously improve our business processes and the student experience. In this context our role includes the development and implementation of specific initiatives designed to ensure that our services are accessible, efficient and responsive while delivering consistency, value for money and regulatory compliance. Our aim is to ensure support is efficient and coherent and thus releases academic colleagues to concentrate on delivering their schools’ academic priorities and actively support delivery of an unrivalled student experience. The above activities are currently being undertaken with the service.

Please get in touch with any questions/ comments/ suggestions. We look forward to working with you.
