As well as the conventional types of learning and development observing or job shadowing a colleague can also be a useful way to learn. You could also consider exploring secondment opportunities and job swaps with colleagues in other departments, faculties and institutions to give you the opportunity to learn new skills in a new environment.

More general training and development opportunities can be accessed via the following University providers:

  • The Language Centre provide opportunities for developing your language skills
  • Institute of Continuing Education offer public and professional studies programmes and summer schools covering a wide range of topics.
  • The Community Affairs team at the Office of External Affairs and Communications supports volunteering opportunities for University staff. Volunteering can be a really helpful way to develop new skills and attributes.
