The UoB Manager Induction Programme

The UoB Manager Induction programme aims to equip all new professional services managers with the skills and knowledge they need to manage their staff confidently, effectively and with self-awareness.

About the programme

The UoB Manager Induction programme is open to Professional Services managers who are new to the University context or staff at any grade who are taking on either line management or supervising responsibilities for the first time.

This self-directed management programme has a 'build your own' approach, consisting of two mandatory modules for new managers, and a number of flexible supporting workshops. New managers are asked, in discussion with their own manager, to take a proactive approach to their development and to select and participate in all relevant modules to help them to excel in their new management role.

Line Managing @UoB

The following modules are mandatory for anyone taking on formal line management responsibilities. Staff can attend the sessions in any order and at a time that suits them.

Supervising @UoB

Those new to supervising other people's work, but who aren't formally line managing staff, may attend the foundation module 'Supervising @UoB'.

Supporting modules

These workshops support the core induction modules and focus on specific practical skills required by managers to perform their role effectively. New and existing managers are expected to undertake any modules applicable to their remit and/or their personal development needs.
