As the Director of Learning and Teaching, it is my responsibility to ensure that the services my team of Librarians, Academic Skills Advisors and Digital Learning Specialists directly respond to, support and enhance the learning, teaching and research opportunities offered at the University of Suffolk. We work collaboratively with partners across our professional services and academic course teams to develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in further study or employment.
