Learning and Development

"We will create an environment where all employees are enabled to take responsibility for improving their own development"

When our People and Culture Strategy, People First , launched in March 2018, we made a commitment to put our people at the centre of everything we do at Queen’s. Our last Staff Survey revealed that only half of you felt that there were opportunities for personal development and growth at the University.

To address this, refreshed our Learning and Development offer to ensure that all of our people have the chance to build their capability, empowering them to take responsibility for their own learning and development while ensuring effectiveness in their current role and readiness for future progression.

Our new offer recognises that development comes in lots of different forms: experiential learning through on the job opportunities, coaching and mentoring from line manager or colleagues, networking internally and externally – face to face or via social media – online courses and resources and training courses. Staff are keen to have greater control over their learning and flexibility around how and when they access it, favouring bite-size development accessed in real time.
