Leading for Impact

We are keen to support universities to develop effective approaches to impact. We have developed a range of resources, training and consultancy to support you in this vital area of work. We have drawn on the recent REF exercise to gather critical intelligence on approaches that have led to 4* case studies, and have analysed impact templates to inform our work. From the use of evaluation to inform your approach to establishing effective partnership approaches to your research let us know how we can help you by contacting us at


We offer support from a team of NCCPE staff and associates on a one to one basis. Particularly aimed at developing effective leadership for engagement and impact, we will discuss specific requirements with you, before assigning you a mentor relevant to your specific interests and needs.

International work

We are interested in learning from and sharing with colleagues from around the world. Our international work includes:

  • Partnership with Community Based Research Canada (CBRC). We have developed an international framework to inform our work together, which you can find in the related resources section on the right of the page.
  • Masterclasses with the British Council in Bangladesh


We offer a range of services, from off-the-shelf workshops to more bespoke support. Some of our services are subsidised by our core funders, others are offered on a consultancy basis. We will be happy to provide a quote based on your specific needs. Please contact us via to find out more.
