Assistant Professor Development Programme
New Staff Induction
To see when the next induction is on please visit our induction webpages.
Academic staff should attend the above mentioned induction.
Once a year, in September, we invite new academic staff (who joined from Jan – Sept in a year) to an orientation event. This event for all new academic staff provides a fast track for integration on the three areas of your role, Research, Teaching and Engagement. It will also cover the Universities strategic plan, and give an introduction from our key speakers on the strategic aims. This will include an opening address from the Provost, and a closing address from the Vice Provost/CAO, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Global Engagement, Biodiversity and Climate Action, Library, Communications, and Research.
This induction provides an opportunity to build a network across the faculties at an early stage. This is particularly relevant for Assistant Professors as they embark on their academic career.
