Management Curriculum

Introducing the management curriculum for 2020-2021 with a focus on core management capabilities

Being an effective manager can be challenging, but it can also be rewarding. There are many skills to develop, competing demands to balance, and a perpetually changing context to navigate. No-one is a perfect manager and we all have room to learn, to grow and to develop our own individual style.

This curriculum is for anyone who manages people, teams or delivery, from any job family and at any level.

This curriculum is made up of a set of bite-sized modules designed to allow you to take ownership of your own development as a manager by identifying your strengths and areas for improvement, and then engaging in practice based learning so that you can embed behavioural change.

Some elements of the curriculum are e-learning, some are large scale webinars, some are smaller scale workshops, and some are tailored 1:1 support. All are evidence based, delivered online and supported by technology. The curriculum is based around management behaviours which were developed in collaboration with managers from across all grades and job families. They are practical but align with the management literature and help to describe how we expect managers at the University of Bath to behave in order to create a safe, supportive and productive environment in which everyone can flourish.

Use the accompanying self-assessment tool to reflect on your own areas of strength as well as the areas in which you would like to develop further and then create your bespoke professional development plan.
