  • Development

    At Oxford Brookes we value our employees’ professional development, and as such sector relevant conferences, skills training and knowledge sharing are a priority to us. Here is a selection of the activities Oxford Brookes employees can undertake.

  • Developing your skills

    We encourage excellence and confidence through our staff training and development programme, which is run by in-house team of experts: The Oxford Centre for Staff Learning and Development (OCSLD). OCSLD is one of the UK’s largest and most established providers of staff and educational development for further and higher education.

    The OCSLD team draws upon a wide range of skills and specialisms to support training and development at the University, faculty, directorate and individual level. Its mission is to support the University through the provision of high quality internal and external staff and educational development.

    Discover the next step in your development on one of our courses.

  • Encouraging social enterprise

    If you are a member of staff looking for information, support and resources about enterprise and entrepreneurship education, or for funding to enhance the development of your curriculum, then the Brookes Enterprise Support can help you.  

    This has opened up for me a possible career that is very much related to and rooted in what I love doing. I feel like I have a responsibility now which I didn’t have before, because once you recognise that there is something wrong, or a space or a gap, it is incumbent on you to step up and fill it and actually be the person who makes the change.

    We can also provide advice and opportunities if you'd like to develop your own entrepreneurial talents too with our fantastic programme of events, mentorship and funding.
