Keeping in Touch (KIT) days

It is University policy to offer (up to 10) "Keeping In Touch" (KIT) days for all staff on maternity and adoptive leave.

The department is committed to ensure that these days are made available and recognise this is one way that academic and research staff can keep in touch with their research projects and groups whilst on maternity leave. We hope using these days will help maintain your research profile and publications so that taking maternity leave does not disadvantage you.

To help you to be able to take up the days, childcare provision is available on an ad-hoc basis at the University Nursery for KIT days, for babies over the age of three months.
