School of Psychology

Activities and Events

As a member of staff you can benefit from a number of activities: 


All faculty, regardless of level or stage of career development, are entitled to receive one-to-one support from a mentor. The School of Psychology mentoring system is flexible and informal in nature, and is intended to be supportive and enabling for all involved. The overall intention is to provide a confidential and non-judgemental context for faculty to receive support, encouragement, and advice with respect to a range of issues, questions, concerns, and ambitions.

You are able to approach those who have identified themselves as willing to serve as mentors. Each mentor has created a short personal statement/message to provide some idea of their experience and expertise. Faculty are invited to read the personal profiles of each mentor and select and contact individuals who they think would be most supportive and helpful in terms of their particular interests, concerns, and/or aspirations.

Flexible and part-time work 

We have a Part-Time and Flexible Working Group. This group meets at least once a term and provides an opportunity to meet informally and discuss ideas relating to part-time / flexible working. Meetings are advertised in a newsletter circulated to all faculty (the Bulletin) and via the School of Psychology twitter feed. 

Anyone who would like to discuss issues relating to part-time/flexible working and/or parental leave is also welcome to contact Donna Jessop directly to arrange a meeting by email at
