From education to employment

Leeds Trinity University launches new five-year Strategic Plan to drive growth and potential

Leeds Trinity University (@LeedsTrinity) has published its Strategic Plan for 2021-2026.

The Plan sets out the University’s intentions and ambitions for the next five years, and has been developed with input from its staff, students, alumni, partners and stakeholders.

Providing a framework for the institution’s growth plans, the strategy is built around four Strategic Pillars of ‘Education and Experience’, ‘People and Sustainability’, ‘Research, Impact and Innovation’, and ‘Careers and Enterprise’. This is supported by the two key themes of Digital Futures and the Leeds City Region. Six distinct objectives with ambitious measures of success have been set to track progress.

A comprehensive consultation process was undertaken within the University, with its partners and a wide range of stakeholders to shape the strategy, demonstrating the institution’s ambition to engage and contribute more widely in the Leeds City region and beyond.   

Professor Charles Egbu, Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said:

“As we approach our ten-year anniversary of achieving University status, we find ourselves at a very exciting time in terms of growth and potential.

“From a set of strong foundations, we have the opportunity to make a step change in academic development, employability, careers and the positive contribution we can make in our region, the country and wider world. We also remain a University committed to widening participation and to our ‘name, not a number’ ethos. The Strategic Plan underpins all of this and provides a framework for the journey ahead.

“As a University, we are proud to offer a personal and inclusive experience that gives every student the support to realise their potential and make a difference. I hope you will see that this continues to be central to our approach in the coming years. I look forward to working with everyone in our University community to successfully deliver this ambitious Strategic Plan.”

Jamie Hanley, Chair of the Board of Governors at Leeds Trinity University, added:

“This is a significant moment for Leeds Trinity, with the University firmly focused on the future and the contribution it can make to enhance outcomes for students, staff, stakeholders and wider society.

“I would like to thank the Board of Governors, and all those who contributed to the consultation process, for helping to shape the new Strategic Plan and the ambitious measures of success we have in place to encourage growth and maximise potential. With Professor Egbu and an energised Leadership Team in place, I am excited to see the progress that will be made over the next five years.”
