Staff Development

The University recognises the contribution employees make to its success. It also recognises that to maintain a committed and competent workforce, it needs to ensure that there is adequate training and development provided for all employees.

CAROD has an important role to play in ensuring that members of the staff community are:

  • properly trained in the skills they need to carry out their present jobs at a standard acceptable to the University and its customers;
  • provided with the skills they may need for changes in the way jobs are carried out;
  • encouraged to develop their skills and talents to enable them to progress within the University and reach their full potential.

The University is committed to making the most effective use of the talents, skills and abilities of its workforce and to helping all employees maximise the contribution they can make.

Opportunities for training will be based on an assessment of employees' development needs, irrespective of their sex, age, marital status, disability, race, colour, ethnic or national origin or sexual orientation.

This department is also responsible for equality and diversity within the university. For more information, please see the dedicated page here.
