Our new "How to..." learning series

Logo and module titles How To series

Further to our People Development Review earlier this year, and in line with our response to supporting colleagues and managers with their recovery plans for Covid-19, the People Development team in HR are releasing new learning and development modules as part of a ‘How to’ series.

This learning series is being designed to be flexible and inclusive for all managers and colleagues to access, and we will be prioritising themes and modules in line with organisational needs, but also from feedback gathered from across the University as to what would support professional development now and in future.
