Manager Essentials

This page provides access to the Moodle course which brings together a range of online activities which need to be undertaken by staff who are responsible for others in the University.  These activities have been created by a range of providers, but together cover the key topics which are required by Managers:

  • HR Policies for Managers
  • Recruitment & Selection
  • Equality & Diversity
  • Unconscious Bias
  • Mentally Healthy Workplaces

Each module is relatively short (1-2 hours) and you can work through these at your own pace.  All need to be completed within the first two months of your appointment. To access them, please use your University ID to log into Moodle here:

Additional Resources

Each of the online activities has an accompanying workshop.  They are designed for those who want additional support or to explore the topic further.  These workshops run regularly throughout the year.  To view the upcoming workshops, please visit the personal development management system (PDMS):
