Organisational & Staff Development

The University is increasing its investment in organisational and staff development as we believe it is key to support our aims. The Organisational & Staff Development are here to provide a wide range of services which support individual, departmental and organisational learning that underpins the University’s strategic aims.  


We play an important role in providing development solutions to staff and supporting University-wide initiatives and staff engagement.

  • workshops attendance; 
  • mentoring / coaching;
  • internal/external job shadowing;
  • career planning support; 
  • funding for qualifications, both job-related or personal interest ones; 

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Providing a range of advice and support for University staff and managers on training and development matters as well as the appraisal scheme.
  • Facilitating the University’s Induction programme, including tools and resources to support local induction of new staff members.
  • Co-ordination, design and delivery of a comprehensive in-house development programme for professional services and academic staff within the University.
  • Supporting the University-wide initiatives on smarter ways of working, including Activity Based Working.
