As you may already know if you attended the meeting I held in September, the University has planned some changes to the structure of the School of Education. For those of you who were not able to attend the meeting a copy of my presentation is available by firstname.lastname@example.org.
At its meeting earlier this week the University’s Board of Governors approved plans to create a new ‘Manchester Institute of Education’ (working title) within the existing School of Environment and Development, which would be renamed the School of Environment, Education and Development.
The changes are largely in administrative and management structures and will not impact upon the teaching, experience and support you receive while a student at The University of Manchester.
Creating a new School structure will bring benefits by creating a more sustainable Education offering for the future. It will also bring increased opportunities for inter-disciplinary collaboration with colleagues in other areas.
Over the coming weeks I will set up a group to manage the implementation of the changes, which will have representatives from both the Schools of Education and Environment and Development and the Students’ Union. It is intended that the new School will come into place from 1 September 2013. We will be working closely with our staff in the School of Education to keep them updated and involved throughout the changes.
I will update you through regular emails and meetings and there is also a dedicated website with more information available atwww.humanities.manchester.ac.uk/humnet/educationreview
If you have any specific questions you can email the project team directly at email@example.com.
