Annual reviews

  • Each year OCSLD undertakes a review and refresh of our portfolio. The review documents offer a good insight into the work of our unit. They give examples of the bespoke, timely and work-based interventions that we can offer clients within and beyond Oxford Brookes University. 

  • OCSLD supports the staff and student experience through the provision of high quality staff, organisational and educational development, and by undertaking research and consultancy. OCSLD offers a wide range of work-based interventions for individuals and teams within and beyond Oxford Brookes. Our approach is client-centred, work-based, evidence-based, efficient and technology-enabled. Much of our work is commissioned as needed, with development consultants negotiating timely, bespoke interventions to meet the needs of faculties and directorates or external clients.

    The report demonstrates how our portfolio is evolving in response to the changing needs of the University, and the extent to which it is being continually evaluated and improved. OCSLD is now fully engaged in HR’s annual strategic planning cycle, where our funding, structure and performance are discussed. While this report does not replace the strategic planning process, it does provide a further opportunity to discuss OCSLD’s priorities to ensure that we are meeting organisational needs
