The University offers staff a range of courses and resources to help improve your mental and physical wellbeing at work and in life.

Develop is now live!

Develop, the new learning and development platform for staff, is now live! From April 2021, all our courses and programmes may be booked in Develop along with workshops and events from several other University departments. Course materials and meeting links will also be housed in Develop rather than emailed to you so, when the time comes to take part in a workshop or complete some pre- or post-coursework, simply log in, find your course booking and get learning.

Find full guidance about how to use Develop here, including how-to videos to help you get started.
