For new members of the University and their partners and families
There is a Welcome Event for Research Staff each term which is an excellent way to meet colleagues across the university. New academic staff are invited to attend a one-day Oxford Essentials course which provides an introduction to teaching and learning at Oxford.
You may develop your professional and personal skills whilst at Oxford by taking advantage of a wide range of courses, workshops and seminars. University employees in professional administration and support and technical roles can gain professional qualifications as part of the Work Learn Develop scheme.

The University also offers popular personal development programmes including Step Forward (for women). Advice and mentoring for entrepreneurs is available through the Oxford Foundry (for students) and Oxford University Innovation (for researchers).
