Staff Training Workshops and Programmes

The details of every programme and workshop that we offer to UCC staff are outlined below, categorised under each core competency.

The annual training programme provided by Staff Wellbeing & Development facilitates the training & development of all 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. We also encourage Heads of Schools, Departments & Units to assist, encourage & facilitate staff in training & development opportunities, where time & resources allow. 

Visit our Staff Wellbeing & Development Space on Workvivo to view our full calendar of events including dates & times.

Please note: While most of our programmes are currently delivered online, in person training will commence shortly as we transition back to the workplace. Please check the course location to confirm whether the session is to be held online or in person. Please advise the course facilitator if you are joining the session from your workplace; you will be invited to use headphones and the chat function to help you participate in the sessions.

Cancellation Policy

  • Places for all online programmes are limited.  If you are unable to attend a programme you have booked, please cancel at least 48 hours in advance where possible, so we can offer your place to someone else in good time. To cancel your place, please log on to ESS.
  • If you need to cancel 24 hours or less before a programme, please also contact traininganddevelopment@ucc
  • We reserve the right to cancel a programme if we do not have sufficient bookings or if a facilitator is unavailable at short notice.

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.
