New Line Manager Induction

As a newly appointed line manager, whether promoted internally or externally, you are invited to attend two training courses:

HR Essentials 

All new managers should attend this 90-minute session to provide you with essential information related to your people responsibilities. It’s recommended that you attend as soon as possible after appointment into a line manager role.

 This online session will:

- show you where to find information and policies on the HR website

- explain the information available from Manager Self Service

- highlight who does what within the HR team

 Dates are available at regular intervals. Please book your place via UoRLearn


New Line Manager Induction

This programme is designed for colleagues who are new to management, who have direct responsibility for at least one member of staff. It is relevant whether you’ve been promoted internally or have joined from another organisation and ideally you would attend between three and six months after appointment.

The programme will enable you to explore your management style and work through scenarios that you may encounter as a manager. It’s also an excellent opportunity to network with other newly-promoted managers across the University and meet colleagues from Professional Services who can provide further support and advice when needed.

A delegate on a previous cohort commented: “Thanks again for a really useful set of training - it's been wonderful to meet so many colleagues through this time and to gain a sense of the core themes to underpin my role as a manager here”.

Call for applications will open in the Autumn. To register your interest, please go to UoRLearn to join the waitlist
