Staff at the Centre of their own learning and development is a
vision that complements Brookes’ commitment
to putting Students at the Centre of the student experience.
OCSLD consultants support Career Development as key to this
vision. The term Career
Development is used in Brookes in a much wider sense than classic progression, because the elements of
single careers are often like parts of a jigsaw, the picture emerging
gradually. It takes into account both Personal Effectiveness (developing the
skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to
work well in the here and now your
current job role) and Personal Development
(developing self-awareness, motivation and
experiences needed to prepare and
position for future roles).
Development is a key element of the Brookes Personal Development Review (PDR).
The OCSLD portfolio
presented in this section supports individual exploration against the backdrop
of the organisation’s guiding principles and values. It recognises that an organisation is its
people and that people flourish with space to think and time to grow. Building
a coaching culture; creating leadership and mentoring networks; providing and
commissioning thought provoking workshops; linking colleagues to professional
bodies, accreditation and development pathways; promoting shadowing,
secondment, apprenticeship and internship opportunities; activating mobility
and agility organisationally – create the conditions for satisfying and
sustaining career development to be done.
