Focus on People

Focus on People was announced by the Registrar in October 2019.

The programme involves a series of projects, initially focusing on two broad areas:

  • Leadership and management: providing support for new managers; enhancing resources for existing managers, and ensuring personal development reviews (PDRs)
  • Professional skills and career development: providing clearer frameworks for professional colleagues; extending professional networks, and developing clearer career paths

These projects will provide support for all professional services staff – whether they are in the central University or academic divisions.

You can find out more about the programme as well as read career profiles from those who have progressed within professional services - via the Focus on People website.

While not formally part of the Focus programme, Focus on People is fully aligned with its ambitions to develop the best professional support services possible for the University.
