What action do I need to take?

It is your responsibility to:

  • agree with your line manager the statutory and compliance training which is appropriate for your role
  • attend and complete the training to the level of competence required
  • help ensure that accurate training records are kept (for example, by making sure you sign attendance registers at training events)

What training do I need?

Everyone, including temporary staff, must complete these online tutorials:

  • Equality and diversity
  • Information security
  • Introduction to fire safety
  • Data Protection (GDPR)

Note: University employees will be automatically assigned these courses by the Learning Management System.

For associate staff (temporary and casual workers), this training is provided separately. An Associate staff / student IT account is required.

New starters should work with their line manager to identify their appropriate statutory and compliance training needs during their induction period.

Existing staff should familiarise themselves with the statutory and compliance guidelines and review the programmes currently available, and agree with their line manager the programmes they need to attend.

The University has identified key training requirements for staff. There may also be other statutory and compliance training needs specific to your department or job. You should discuss with your line manager how these can be met.

When identifying training, it is important to consider the relevance and timeliness of the training to an individual. For example, in the area of fixed-term contracts, if you are a line manager but do not have any members of your team on a fixed term contract or are not likely to in the foreseeable future, this training would not currently be seen as appropriate.
