Meanwhile, Wittenborg’s chair of the executive board, Peter Birdsall, and CEO, Maggie Feng, welcomed members of staff back from the summer break on Friday, with staff attending a series of workshops and dinner.

He reminded staff about the importance of growth without compromising on quality.  

On Tuesday, academic staff met for the annual teachers meeting, which takes place at the beginning of each academic year.
