Learning and Further Resources

All workers should have access to training and development and university employees are no exception. 

If your continuing professional development needs are not being met by your employer we can help you find relevant training or you want to see improvements to the Sussex training offer the branch can negotiate on this. 

UCU and the TUC offer a range of education and training courses and resources. When applying to attend a course, please inform our Learning Rep Ciaran Clark who is able to support you in securing your statutory rights to time-off for training.
