About this course

This 3 hour workshop for internal candidates is designed to help you gain essential skills and confidence when applying for internal roles.

The workshop will help you to:

  • get ready for your interview; giving you the chance to reflect on what you might need to do to prepare for interview and how you might handle interview nerves
  • explore how you might answer interview questions in terms of style and delivery

There will be time to practice some of these skills and to get feedback from the presenters.

Key areas of University strategy will also be outlined, and links will be made to the Effective Behaviours Framework, as well as an indication of further resources that you may find useful in the Development Toolkit.


Prior to this workshop you will need to email the presenters with a completed application form (from a recent application), or your up-to-date CV. Additionally, if you are able to share any recent interview feedback with the presenters it would allow them to help address any issues raised.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • identify how you can best prepare yourself for interview
  • apply skills to help you manage your interview skills and confidence
  • locate the University Strategy, Effective Behaviours Framework, Development Toolkit and relevant HR Policies
