NCAS supports its staff to continue their own professional development and encourages discussions about training needs and goals setting to take place as part of an annual review.

As part of this, staff should take advantage of any training and development opportunities that are available locally, at host institutions.

Where there are training needs that cannot be met at a host institution, staff should contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. at NCAS. If training isn’t available to staff locally, or would be more effective to be delivered across multiple locations, NCAS will investigate the best way to meet the needs and the funding mechanism (generally through local funds, rather than the central training budget).

This may include organising an NCAS training event for staff, or helping staff to identify suitable training providers .

Training needs that can only be met through external providers, such as Health & Safety , MBA or PGCE, will be considered on a case by case basis. Where staff wish to apply for funding to pay tuition fees, they should complete a Training Case which must be supported by your Line Manager.

Relevance of training, and funding decisions, will be dependent on the role held by the staff member. Applications will rank more highly where the training is directly relevant to your present role, will develop you in that role, or will gain new skills for NCAS.

The pdf NCAS Staff Training Support Policy 2020 (61 KB)  outlines the level of approval needed and source of funding for each proposed course. Where there is a clear benefit to your career and to NCAS, cases for partial NCAS funding will be considered.

All allocations are subject to funding being available as there is a finite budget. Applications may be unsuccessful due to lack of available funds, rather than due to lack of merit.
