Hallam Guild – UKAT Community of Practice


New – 2021. This Hallam Guild group aims to build a Community of Practice (CoP), drawing together staff from across the institution interested in the development and implementation of Academic Advising. Supported by Hallam’s Institutional UKAT Membership (UK Advising and Tutoring) with core CoP members holding UKAT memberships. Read more about the Hallam Guild group
