About University of Worcester


What is it like to work for University of Worcester

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
As a higher education institution there is an intrinsic expectation that all staff will engage in continuous personal and professional development. It is an integral part of how they operate as a business. Although it forms part of an annual review process it is an underpinning principle of their everyday work and is very much driven by the individual. Specific examples include an on-going programme of apprenticeships which has supported young people in gaining experience, qualifications and further employment, also the opportunity for any member of staff to be supported to study for a first degree.
