The implementation of OneUniversity and the new ways of working will affect the majority of university staff.

We will ensure people have access to the support they need.

Whether it’s requesting annual leave, submitting an expense claim, managing complex research grants, or general day-to-day duties, we need to ensure that our people have access to the support, knowledge, skills, tools and training they need to do their jobs.

Our approach to training

Our training and education programme aims to recognise the different learning needs of our staff, and provide tailored (but not personal) education and training to those who need it in a way that best suits their learning style.  This will include:

  • Learning by doing – where users participate in real-world processes
  • Self-service learning – through online learning and training modules
  • Group learning – workshops

Key user training

Our key user training will take place before any other training, and before User Acceptance Testing. 

Our key users are local ‘experts’ in Schools and Directorates who will provide help and support to colleagues on the use of the OneUniversity solutions. They have excellent working knowledge of their area of work and an in-depth understanding of the new policies, processes and ways of working. 

Key users will be responsible for providing front line support to colleagues before, during and after implementation and they will participate in key user training (KUT) and user acceptance testing (UAT), providing feedback to the Programme Technical Team. 

End user training

Due to the high numbers of staff likely to need training in the new ways of working, we will work with School and Directorate Managers to provide appropriate training for their areas based on an analysis of individual training needs.
