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. 

Registering for a course

Browse the list of Staff Development Program courses in Workday. Refer to the Learning Quick Reference Guide if required.

In-person courses require Manager approval to attend. Digital courses can be commenced without approval. If you have particular accessibility needs, please contact the course contact listed against the course in Workday. Where a course is being offered via Zoom, the link will become available within the Workday course lesson, after enrolment has been approved. Alternatively the course contact will email the link to enrolees.

For in-person courses, refer to the University map or download the free UQ Maps app to find where it is being held.

If you can no longer attend an in-person course, please drop your enrolment within Workday. Refer to the Manage Enrolments Quick Reference Guide if required.
