Participating in the Staff Development Program

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).
