AUDE is committed to the development and training of estates and facilities staff across the sector. We believe that staff development is a key element in enhancing the professionalism of the Estates function.

The AUDE Academy Masterclass Series has been developed specifically to meet the need of university estates and facilities professionals, following extensive consultation with AUDE members.

AUDE masterclasses and training programmes are available to staff from AUDE member institutions. Delegates are able to network with other HE Estate professionals, giving significant additional benefit and enhancement to the value of the training.

If you have any thoughts or ideas for future programmes please contact us.

Also don’t forget to check what local opportunities are available from your own institution's Staff Development Team!
