Career Development Website goes live

This week OCSLD launched the Career Development Website (intranet only)

Whether your work role is administration, teaching and learning, finance or managing, if you want to think about next steps in your career, or develop your skills and self-awareness at work, will find this website useful. You will also find these resources useful when preparing for or following up on your Personal Development Review meeting.

Career and Personal Development require an individual focus. Development needs will vary according to the job role held and the individual’s needs, wishes, abilities, skills and other personal qualities and attributes. Career journeys in organisations are no longer about following a clearly defined path in many cases. The path is often more like crazy paving and the pattern will be the individual’s choice and responsibility. This has the benefit that it is often possible to change route.

This website supports the personal and professional development of individuals at Oxford Brookes

• regardless of type or level of role

• reflecting and acknowledging the experiences and aspirations of colleagues at different stages of their careers and on different career trajectories

• renewing, refreshing, reframing, building on skills and behaviours for the newly emerging workplace

In the next weeks the project team intend to promote the website around the University and will be planning future training/events to promote it more widely. If you have any further comments or suggestions, please contact any of the project team (Kay Tillyer, Valerie Fawcett, Liz Drewett). Your input is really important to us.
