The Change Academy is part of a wider British Council Going Global Partnerships Programme which is run in Uzbekistan in collaboration with Ministry of higher secondary and specialised Education (MHSSE) and delivered by the British Council and Advance-HE.
The Change Academy is a programme of intensive capacity building for Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) moving towards financial, academic and organisational autonomy focusing on Quality in Learning & Teaching and Graduate Outcomes. The Change Academy is for teams of up to eight people from all levels of seniority and both professional and academic services. The Change Academy programme combines immersive input and learning sessions (LEAPs) with work-based Change Projects, and other remote support and national showcasing events; professional networks and a virtual learning environment. You work with experts from the UK Higher Education support agency Advance-HE, from our extensive networks of colleagues in UK HEIs and from different sectors in Uzbekistan.
The principle behind the Change Academy is that systemic, sustainable, robust change happens through committed networks of people connected by a singular purpose and goals, but working semi-autonomously within their individual expertise areas with their teams.
Change must be part of an overarching strategy; must be operational meaning evolving systems, structures and processes that enable and support the new position and people changing behaviours, attitudes and practices.
