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. 

If you are attending a workshop or programme on campus, please do try to arrive five minutes before the start time. If you are participating online, to ensure you get the most from attending, you are encouraged to have your camera on and can comfortably use your microphone to be in a position to participate.

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.
