Workshops and courses

Our workshops, courses and development resources can help you grow personally and professionally.

Summer 2020

During lockdown, OD are offering a range of online workshops for staff. You can book places by clicking the links on the right, and you can download a calendar of all our upcoming webinars here.

Follow the links below to find out what courses are on offer

Is there a charge for attending?

All of our courses and online programmes are free to Sussex staff. 

Late cancellation

Late cancellations that leave seats empty have considerable cost implications for the University and remove opportunity for other staff members who might wish to attend. Given this, a late cancellation fee of £50 will be charged to your school or division if you cancel your booking within three days of the course start date.

Exceptions may be made for illness, evidenced by your line manager or doctor’s note, or a family emergency. We are happy for you to substitute your place as long as you notify us before the course commences.
