CAPE Staff Development

The University is committed to the development of academic practice for all (academic and support staff). The programme for 2015/2016 makes support available for both individuals and teams. This ensures that students’ experiences of processes are consistently supported and their experiences of learning and teaching inspire and challenge them to learn more. . As well as offering a programme of workshops for individuals to attend, CAPE also recognise the importance of customising workshops that can be run with individuals or teams in a suitable format. The CAPE team can work with Departments and/or Schools to deliver a session on a topic of interest and co-facilitate with the Department or School. Alternatively they can organise a series of development days.
