Welcome to STEP?

STEP is the University’s programme of continuous professional development (CPD) for academic staff. It is designed to give staff the knowledge and support to enhance their professional practice and, in turn, enhance the student experience and their own experiences of teaching. Within STEP we provide accredited programmes, an annual academic staff development programme, as well as mentoring, support and assessment for professional recognition with the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
