There are a number of ways of engaging with Beacon.
Individual members of staff can contact us at any time and sign up for our workshops or ask for further information.
We are increasingly also finding that course teams would like to find out more about Beacon. Whilst all applications are produced individually, colleagues have reported that supportive networks of staff within teams, departments, schools or even colleges can help to maintain momentum whilst drafting submissions and can offer peer support, advice, suggestions and feedback during the process.
The Beacon team are very happy to come and talk to teams about the scheme and how to get involved. We can attend committee meetings, development days or workshops to come and share introductory information about Beacon. If there are sufficient numbers interested we can also offer bespoke Orientation and Writing Workshops for teams.
If you would like to find out more about this please contact Sarah King, Beacon Programme Lead via Beacon@contacts.bham.ac.uk
