The University of Southampton
Professional Development


The University is committed to supporting mentoring and, in collaboration with associates across the University, is transforming the approach to staff learning and development and creating a community and culture of learning in which continuous professional development is prioritised for all. The University's mentoring schemes contributes to this culture by seeking to enable individuals to reach their potential by linking them to the support of an experienced colleague.
