STAFF AND FACULTY DEVELOPMENT
All postsecondary institutions should recognize that staff is its key resource in its aims of: achieving academic excellence at the forefront of research and higher education, allowing independent enquiry which allows staff to pursue their ideas with rigor and integrity, providing a high quality learning experience which enables students to develop intellectually and individually.

The purpose of a school's investment in staff development and training is to ensure that staff can develop both personally and professionally so that we have a highly skilled, highly motivated and professional staff, able to perform consistently to the highest standards. Your institution should be committed to the support and promotion of staff development for this purpose.
The institution recognizes that the efficient and effective functioning of the institution and the achievement of the above aims rest on the contribution of academic and support staff alike. The institution therefore interprets staff development as referring to all categories of its staff, for whom equitable provision must be made.
The institution will aim to ensure that: each member of staff understands what his or her job involves, each person is trained to perform his or her current job to the required standards, staff are prepared and equipped for opportunities created by changes in the institution. and each individual is enabled to develop his or her potential, both personally and professionally.
Those with managerial responsibilities have a duty to: help staff in developing their performance and effectiveness, provide staff with the information necessary to perform their job, guide their staff in how best to equip themselves for their current and future roles, and ensure that appropriate action takes place.
The role of those responsible for the institutionís provision of staff development is to ensure that mechanisms and opportunities exist of an appropriate standard and cost. They will act as a central focus for the planning and provision of a range of staff development activities, based on identified demands.
The process of development is most effective when each person takes responsibility for his or her own progress. Prime responsibility for learning rests with the individual, in partnership wherever possible, with those who have managerial responsibility for that person's area of work.
