Resources available within the University

The Learning Institute has a number of books in our library which may be relevant to support staff and those with supervisory or first line management roles.

The Springboard Springboard books (208kb) on personal and professional development may be of particular interest.

We also recommend using the resources on the staff gateway. The section on training and development may be of particular interest. Here you will find details for other training providers in the university as well as information on personal development.

If you are interested in undertaking a qualification through the university or are considering another qualification which is not available in the university, but is relevant to your job you might like to look at our pages on the staff learning scheme. The staff learning scheme enables staff to apply for a financial contribution towards any fees associated with studying towards a qualification.

Resources available outside the University
