Organisational and Staff Development Services (OSDS)

CAPOD is changing! Its services will continue, but through two new units: CEED and OSDS. 

Organisational and Staff Development Services (OSDS) will continue to deliver the wide range of professional development programmes currently available to all University staff – academic, research and professional. These will include the ‘Passport’ programmes, online training and mentoring and coaching for staff. OSDS will also support organisational change and will retain responsibility for the University Wellbeing programme, our Healthy Working Lives Award, the HR Excellence in Research Award, and will continue to lead on and contribute to a range of other University-wide initiatives.'

Access staff development services

The Centre for Educational Enhancement and Development (CEED) will launch in April, and provide joined-up learning and teaching support to staff and students, combining educational development, pedagogical workshops, technology enhanced learning and IT skills, and academic and study skills support. CEED will deliver its Professional Skills Curriculum through the Careers Centre, and GRADSKills and MSkills programmes for PGR and PGT students through St Leonard’s college.

CEED services are currently accessible through the existing CAPOD webpage. Redirects will be put in place as web content is migrated to new pages.
