Leadership Essentials new (1 of 2) [Places] 09:30 - 12:30 N/A - MS Teams


Leadership Essentials is a key programme suitable for those with responsibilities for others’ work, behaviour and development, which aims to help managers refresh and build their skills and experience in this area. As well as clarifying key responsibilities, it focuses on critical areas that some can find more difficult, such as giving and receiving feedback effectively and handling challenging conversations. The programme incorporates tutor input; opportunities for discussion, reflection and sharing of good practice with others with similar responsibilities. It also includes curated e-learning resources to support managers with their ongoing learning and development.

Participants are required to attend both half day sessions.

Before attending, please take some time to review the short Leadership Essentials: Management Responsibilities Films of other University colleagues talking about their role as a manager.

Communicating clearly and being engaging can be challenging in any work environment. Doing so remotely can be even more difficult. This session will provide you with constructive feedback and tips to refine your speaking style, increase your personal impact, make ‘screen time’ feel more ‘face-to-face’ and address any concerns you may have about your communication skills. Coaching will “zoom in” on the areas you need to focus on, from how you come across onscreen to how to shape and deliver an interesting and effective presentation. Get ‘ready for your close-up’ and feel confident the next time you press “Join Meeting”!

Brexit and the new Immigration System [Places] 13:00 - 15:00 N/A - PPD Zoom (Internal Ref:ATL)


This course is recommended for those responsible for the recruitment and selection of staff and those with HR responsibilities.

With Brexit, and the end of the transition period on 31 December 2020, the UK government intends to launch a new immigration system from 1 January 2021. This system will apply to all non-UK nationals entering the UK for the first time, and non-EEA nationals already resident in the UK who are seeking to extend their existing visas.

The new system is loosely based on the existing immigration system, but with some changes. The aim of this course is to help those involved with recruitment and selection to navigate the new rules which regulate the recruitment of individuals who are subject to immigration control, whilst ensuring full compliance. The course will also outline other key visa routes such as Global Talent and Tier 5.
