A new policy framework has been developed to ensure the University has a consistent approach to writing new and developing existing policies.
The framework requires all University departments to review their policies to ensure they are up to date, categorised correctly and published centrally on the document system.
The framework also provides guidance on how to produce policies, the procedures to follow, codes of practice to be aware of and guidance in relation to the University's legislative framework.
Advice on how to communicate with staff regarding new and updated policies can be found here
A new policy template has also been created and should be used when reviewing policies or incorporating changes. Please note that it is not necessary to immediately transfer all existing policies into the new template. When policies are next reviewed or changed for any reason, the new template should be used at that point. As an interim measure, you are asked to ensure that all policies now include a version control document control box asset out in the new template.
