Developing the YUFE staff journey
As well as providing opportunities for students across the YUFE network, there is also a workstream focusing on the opportunities for staff to develop and share expertise. The objective of the Staff Journey strand of work, which is co-led by the University of Essex and the University of Bremen as alliance members, is to:
- develop a series of tools, using the European University concept to promote upward career paths and professional development exchanges
- help foster a culture of excellence and enhance our capacity to attract, develop and share talented staff
To support the delivery of the YUFE Staff Journey, four subgroups have been created focusing on
- career tracks
- talent and experts' portal
- staff development and recruitment strategy
By Autumn 2020 a joint Staff Development Policy has been co-produced setting out the principles and commitment of each YUFE partner to provide accessible, quality training and development for staff at all levels. This is to be followed by a Recruitment strategy paper defining the joint YUFE commitment to inclusive, open and fair recruitment. If you'd like to find out more about the YUFE Staff Journey, please contact Paul Smart.
Due to current limitations on international travel the focus of the mobility strand has, by necessity, changed to focus on opportunities for virtual mobility.
