Early and Mid-Career academic development planning guide

There are a range of activities and areas in the University that can contribute to your career development. We have collated some of the key resources into a document under the headings of Research, Service and Teaching.

Higher Education Development Centre (HEDC), Learning and Development, and Academic Leadership Development Programme (ALDP) all run relevant workshops.

We update this document each semester to include current workshops and dates.

If you have a question about what is available or a topic you want to learn about then please email us ALDP.



All university research staff will shortly be able to access on-line career training courses developed by the University of Oxford. Epigeum will allow staff to work through modules at their own pace and as they need to upskill in particular areas. The courses will be managed by HEDC who may run complementary in-person workshops. Watch this space.
