Organisational and Professional Development

Mandatory Training

QMUL expects all members of staff to complete particular forms of training during their time here. 

This is either because we have professional and ethical standards that we expect to see, to ensure that each us is treated fairly by colleagues, or because we are obliged to comply with regulation or legislation that governs how we operate.

The table below identifies the types of training, how it’s delivered, and the frequency with which every member of staff will need to complete that course. 

Please also be aware that there may be other training mandatory for your role or area; please check with your line manager.  You may also wish to see our page on Induction.

Health & Safety mandatory training: For more information on Health & Safety training necessary for different roles, see the appendix of the training policy on the Health & Safety Directorate's training page.
