Your personal development

How we support you

DELTA is our institutional approach to staff development run by the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching. Our DELTA approach ranges from delivering workshops and showcase events across the University, offering bespoke College sessions, to supporting our staff as they develop their professional method and practice.

DELTA Workshops are a great opportunity to learn about creative approaches to teaching, learning and assessment and find out more about new systems and tools.  They are delivered using best practice and typically aligned to the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). DELTA sessions are available to all University staff across all our campuses.
