Staff Development

Opportunities for professional development

There are plenty of opportunities available to help you develop new skills and advance your career here and we encourage all our employees to take advantage of what’s on offer.

Induction and probation

In your first few months with us, you’ll be given support to learn all that's required to do your job and understand how the University works. You’ll be trained on relevant systems and be invited to join an 'Introduction to the University' day.

Staff development and performance review

Our annual review scheme takes place with your line manager and is at the heart of your professional development. You’ll meet throughout the year to identify areas for development and look at opportunities to fulfil those needs.

Learning opportunities

We offer plenty of development opportunities across a broad range of topics, from lunchtime briefing sessions to accredited programmes you’ll work on over time. There are opportunities both internally and using experts from external companies. If you can’t find the learning you need internally, it may also be possible to attend courses outside the University.
