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

Before you enrol in a course, make sure your have your supervisor's approval. Once you have approval, you can register for a course in several ways:

  • Choose the course you would like to enrol in and click 'Register' on the course page, you will be taken directly to the course on My Aurion. When you select the date and apply your registration will be sent to your supervisor for approval. Once approved your nomination will be uploaded to the course on Aurion. If fully subscribed you will be waitlisted.
  • Enrol directly through MyAurion (staff login required) by navigating to Talent > Requested courses > Add. The enrolment request will be sent to your supervisor for approval.
  • Contact the Staff Development team directly if you don't have access to My Aurion and/or a supervisor to approve your nomination.  An email from your supervisor approving your request will be required to allow us to manually enrol you onto the course.

If a course is full, you will be waitlisted. If we are able to offer you a place on the course you will be notified as soon as possible by email. Places often become available closer to the date and waitlists are taken into account when considering whether to run further iterations of a course.

If you have particular accessibility needs, please contact the course coordinator listed against the course who will be listed in the UQ Contacts list directly. 

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

Courses running via Zoom

Course coordinators will email the Zoom links a day or two prior to course commencement.

Course coordinators names are listed against the course where you register and they are listed in UQ Contacts, please contact the course coordinator if you don't receive the Zoom link the day before your course commencement.

Withdrawing from a course

Staff Development Courses are often over-subscribed, not attending courses 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.
