Thirty30The University is committed to staff development and have been for thirty years! To celebrate thirty years of staff development at our University, a 30-day festival is happening across November, Thirty30. There is a huge array of development events already planned in November, with nearly 40 teams delivering over 200 events, plus some special Thirty30 events have been planned.

Thirty30 has three big ideas to help you take 30 minutes extra for your professional development in November:

  • Development is everywhere
  • My development is my responsibility
  • Thinking is the beginning

We hope that right across campus on 30 November at 3:30pm, people take thirTEA minutes to talk about development, which need be no more complicated than putting the kettle on and having a chat. Find out how you can get involved in this event, and much more about the festival on the Thirty30website.
