Caught in the Middle

Caught in the Middle is the first development membership programme for middle managers in Higher Education.

Middle managers play a crucial role in any organisation, but especially in Higher Education. They are the backbone of the institution, responsible for translating the vision and goals of the VC and senior leadership into actionable strategies and plans. However, despite their importance, middle managers are often the most dissatisfied employees in an institution.

Caught in the Middle aims to change that by  developing, supporting and connecting middle managers across the Higher Education sector to thrive in their roles.
