Information for colleagues

Training and Development

Whether working on campus or from home, all colleagues are encouraged to continue enhancing their skills and professionalism by engaging with the training and development opportunities available.

People Development Online
Our comprehensive range of online learning courses, supported by the People and Organisational Development Team (POD), are still available via People Development Online, and have recently been expanded to include courses such as:

  • Managing a remote workforce
  • Mental health awareness
  • Self care and wellbeing

Webinar Workshops
A new range of webinar workshops have been created by the POD team to replace the previous face-to-face workshops. 

Each of the workshops are limited to small numbers of colleagues and are highly interactive to provide an enjoyable and effective learning experience. A number of these webinars have been specifically designed to address the current challenges we face, such as:

  • How to be personally effective when working remotely
  • Virtual team collaboration

The induction programme has now been redesigned into webinar format. A highly interactive experience, the webinar gives new colleagues an opportunity to find out more about the wider university, services available and is an opportunity to engage with other new employees. To book a place email
