Guidelines for Staff Development

Staff Wellbeing & Development Guidelines

The annual training programme provided by Staff Wellbeing & Development facilitates the training & development of staff employed by the University. We would encourage all staff to take the initiative, time & opportunity to participate in at least two training workshops or events over the course of an academic year.

Staff development is most effective when staff take responsibility to attend workshops on their own initiative. We also encourage Heads of Schools, Departments & Units to assist, encourage & facilitate staff in training & development opportunities, where time & resources allow.

While there are times that staff might feel that their schedule is too busy to avail of training opportunities, we ask all staff to consider attending our programmes as integral to enabling a productive & well-balanced professional practice.

To book your place on our training courses log into your account at & head to My Training. 

Make it easier to find a programme on ESS (once advertised via email) by inserting the date & remember to scroll through all the pages.

If you have any queries on the above, please do not hesitate in contacting us.


Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.” - Earl Nightingale
