Taking the lead on learning and teaching at SUMS


The Management School has a new Associate Dean for Learning and Teaching.

Dr Robert Wapshott, who was awarded an Early Career Senate Award for Learning and Teaching in 2014, is taking on the role following Professor Paul Latreille’s appointment as Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor for Learning and Teaching for the University of Sheffield.

On his appointment, Robert said: “I’m really looking forward to building on excellent learning and teaching activity already happening in the Management School.

“It is a time of significant change in the economy and the higher education sector. By advancing Sheffield’s excellent reputation for student experience underpinned by high quality research and teaching I am confident we will continue to develop knowledgeable and employable students who are socially aware and who impact positively on organisations and society.

“I am keen to thank Paul Latreille for his fantastic contribution and to wish him the best of luck in his new role – with colleagues, he has built a strong foundation of innovation and support in learning and teaching at the Management School. Thanks also go to all of my colleagues, who have welcomed me into this role with enthusiasm and positivity.”
