Staff development

As part of our commitment to maintaining its high standards, we run an extensive staff development programme, which offers a range of development events on areas we feel are of interest and relevance to staff.

Your learning and development

It is not just our students who have the opportunity to learn, study and develop. Our staff do too. We run a range of training and development sessions to help staff become fully proficient in their roles and develop their careers.

Teachers new to the profession get help through access to PGCerts and a variety of induction and training events. Staff are encouraged to make use of our programmes and courses for their own development; many full-time and part-time staff study for degrees and attend other university courses free of charge.

To help with the practical aspects of study and so you can develop in other areas of your life, we offer an interest-free loan of up to £1000 for the purchase of home PCs.

Secondments and job-sharing opportunities also provide great ways to expand your knowledge and capabilities, as well as preparing you for promotion and longer-term career development.
