Online resources

Our new online resource centre, LearnSmart, contains thousands of bite-size articles, checklists, presentations, audio and video clips, elearning materials, exercises and links to further reading on a huge range of topics from managing your career to motivating others.

Information for managers, supervisors and team leaders

These pages provide essential information for managers starting the beginning of the staff journey - recruitment - through day to day management, staff development and rewards, how to tackle negative issues that may occur, and what to do if a member of staff is leaving your supervision.

University Library and culture services

Don’t forget that all staff have full access (to search, use and borrow library items) to the University Library. With over a million items there is likely to be something of interest to everyone. The Library and culture service also manages some superb collections of archive and museum resources: more information about these can be found on their web page.

Technology in education

The Education and Student Experience e-learning team's e-learning site offers some really useful guides, example videos and tips on using technology including Turnitin, Responseware, creating videos and software like Audacity.

Key University documents

Everything from the University’s Annual report to finance regulations and the TQA manual can be found at University documents and policies.
