Build your engagement skills

Warwick Institute of Engagement is working with groups across the University to ensure that training in Public Engagement is part of every staff member’s experience of being at Warwick. From introducing Engagement in the Induction Hub for all new staff members, to making engagement an integral part of both Research and Teaching-focussed staff training programmes, as well as to our own suite of training courses (see more below), we want all Warwick staff – whatever their role in the University – to understand the value of engaging with the wider world and feel supported and empowered to engage. At the same time, the Institute is also working with the University Promotions Board to ensure that staff effort to engage are fully recognised and rewarded.
