We encourage all staff to participate in their own development by taking advantage of the courses offered in the University Staff Development Program.

The UQ Staff Development Program provides you with the opportunity to develop technical and systems skills and personal capabilities across all levels and at all stages in your career. The program is developed and delivered by professional and academic staff across UQ, and overseen by the University Staff Development Committee (USDC).

Registering for a course

  • Choose the course you would like to enrol in and click 'Register' on the course page.
  • Enrol through MyAurion (staff login required) by navigating to Talent > Requested courses > Add.
  • Contact the Staff Development team directly.

If a course is full, you can still register for the waitlist. Places often become available closer to the date and waitlists are taken into account when considering whether to run further iterations of a course.

Once you have registered for your course, refer to the University map or download the free UQnav App to find where it is being held.

Staff Development Courses are often over-subscribed, and not attending courses once you have enrolled disadvantages other staff who are waiting for a place. 

If you are unable to attend a course you are enrolled in, let us know so that your place can be offered to another staff member. To withdraw, contact Staff Development as early as possible.
