Welcome to the Learning and Development Website

Our learning and development programmes can be used for supporting staff development needs identified during a performance review, for inducting new staff members into the University, and/or for upskilling and developing individuals or teams. 

**New Opportunities** L&D Bitesize Learning sessions**

Our New Bitesize Learning Sessions are designed and facilitated by our university staff. The sessions allow staff to improve their facilitation skills and share expertise and knowledge with colleagues. Each session lasts 60 minutes and topics range from Customer Service to Coaching.
