New head for University of Gloucestershire Business School

The University of Gloucestershire has announced the arrival of Dr. Dominic Page, as its new Head of the Business School.

With 16 years in higher education, Dr. Dominic Page is an HRM and disability researcher specialising in welfare reform, employment law and in-work poverty. His move to the University of Gloucestershire marks a new chapter for the Business School, now based in its new £18 million-pound home at Oxstalls Campus in Gloucester.

Dr. Page previously worked as head of the South Wales Business School at the University of South Wales and as associated head of department in Bristol Business School at the University of the West of England. Prior to this he was a senior lecturer in Human Resource Management at UWE.

He also spent time at Cardiff University as a research fellow, where worked with the Welsh Assembly Government on the management of workplace health and GP education.

"Business education needs to be innovative, transformational and connected with society. I am passionate about developing the way in which the Business School engages with industry in all we do, through a range of strategic partnerships," said Dr. Page.

"We have had huge success in developing very high-quality apprenticeships and professional education to support the upskilling of our local workforce. This will be a significant priority as we look to support rural and urban economic recovery for Gloucestershire and the wider region.

"We need to build on and develop our partnerships with industry to help new generations of students meet the challenges we will undoubtably face as we look to rebuild our economy. I am committed to exploring how we can support business as they respond to the uncertain short-term trading conditions and build resilience in the face of real market uncertainty. 

"Over the coming months, we will be launching a range of initiatives to connect our students with industry for mutual benefit."
