Organisational Development and Professional Learning

Credit-bearing Courses (2016-2017)

The University is currently refreshing its framework for academic staff development and as a consequence of this, and staffing changes within Organisational Development and Professional Learning (OD&PL) we will not be offering credit bearing courses in 2016-2017.  Colleagues are able to apply for professional recognition through the UKPSF@Leeds individual application scheme in 2016-2017.

OD&PL will be supporting colleagues who are currently registered on credit-bearing courses to complete this year, and encourages colleagues to do so. In particular applicants who are yet to complete ULTRA will be supported by OD&PL to complete their attendance and assessment. Where applicable equivalent sessions have been scheduled to enable attendance to be completed.

Registered participants on all credit-bearing courses (i.e. ULTRA, PGCert, PGCAP) who are currently in periods of extension on their original registration will also be supported by OD&PL to complete their course.
