Planning and developing your career

Planning and developing your career is an ongoing process. We offer a wide range of tools, support and guidance to ensure you select the most appropriate modules to help with your career development within sustainability. Support is provided via our personal development plan that enables you to identify key areas of development to enhance knowledge and performance in your current role or address career aspiration towards a future role.

You are welcome to register for any of our timetabled modules listed below in our calendar, they are intensive five day modules making them ideal for blending with your work and other commitments. Please email Deidre Richardson to discuss anything about module selection if you are unsure.  

Bookings can be made via our online store.

You gain credits from each passed module you complete and you can use these credits to get either a certificate, diploma or a masters degree.

You'll need to pass four modules to gain a certificate, eight modules to gain a diploma and eight modules plus a dissertation to gain your masters degree.

All applications must be received no later than one week before the module commencement date.

Our tailored training packages can be delivered in-house or at the University to meet the requirements and needs within your organisation or your department. To ensure the most appropriate training is delivered to you and your staff we build your training package via a series of meetings between our subject experts and our Continued Professional Development team.
