About Us / Training & Development

The skills, knowledge and capabilities of our people are central to the success of Unite Students, so we need to attract talented and motivated people and then help them become outstanding at what they do. That’s why we believe passionately in the value of high quality training and development.

Whatever your role, and whatever your level of experience, you will benefit from a training and development framework designed to meet your individual needs through our progressive structure which allows horizontal as well as vertical development. Your development is structured to fit in with the way you work. As well as face to face training we use a mixture of other methods to suit you including on-line refresher courses, self-paced e-learning and web-based materials. As learning at Unite Students is not confined to the classroom you will also benefit from a range of other development opportunities such as secondments, mentoring and support to pursue professional qualifications.

And if we think you have a lot of potential our leadership development programmes can help to develop the knowledge and skills required to fast track you to higher levels of responsibility and challenge.

At Unite Students you will be an active participant in your own professional growth – by building on your strengths and defining the career path that’s best for you as well as the business, you will be encouraged to realise your full potential.
