Development opportunities

We place a high value on learning for all staff throughout their career at Sheffield Hallam and demonstrate that commitment through investment in staff development activities. Reflection, review, feedback and opportunities for learning will form part of everyone's work experience. Clear guidance is provided about how to access development at all levels and what resources are available.



We offer a wide variety of development that enables you to carry out your role, develop your personal effectiveness and wellbeing, leadership and management skills and to support your career progression. These include
