About us

Welcome to the Learning and Development website, designed as a ‘one stop shop’ for all the courses, events, development and support provided by our People Development and Academic Development teams, plus links to other internal/external training providers. 

We believe that the right training/development can have a transformational effect on your professional and personal life. The people who work here have fantastic abilities. The opportunities we provide can help you develop to reach your potential, learning to recognise and build upon your strengths, learn new skills, challenge ways of thinking and working, and cultivate an appetite for lifelong learning.

It's not just about courses, together our teams provide tailored, high quality learning opportunities for all colleagues, offering a range of opportunities from short workshops to longer accredited programmes; online resources and guidance; support for communities of practice and coaching and mentoring.

We offer personal, up to date advice to academic and professional staff and design bespoke sessions to provide accessible, relevant learning and development opportunities.

  • Maximise your personal potential to develop the right skills for your role.
  • Lead and manage other staff effectively, helping you define the skills and capabilities required now and in the future.
