About us

 The Staff Learning and Development (L&D) team are here to support your personal and professional development and, in doing so, to help the organisation go from strength to strength.

Our role covers everyone in the University, though we are not the only people working on learning and development so there may also be support from colleagues in your own area of work. We are working ever more closely with learning experts around the University including those based in local HR teams and notably, but not only, those supporting academic staff and early career researchers (ECR)

We offer everything from off the shelf, face to face training, to bespoke one to one development support. More and more of what we offer can be accessed directly from your PC, phone or other device, so you can learn at your own pace, when it’s most convenient for you.

We have recently changed our structure so that, without increasing the size of our team, we now have 3 team members with personal responsibility for each large part of the University – each of the 3 Faculties (including Faculty-based PSS), the central PSS, the Library and Cultural Institutions and also a more specialised focus on compliance-related development activity.   

By planning our activity both in response to the strategic goals of the University and the learning needs of individuals, we aim to become a truly leading learning organisation.
