GUIDE TO CONTRACTUAL, MANDATORY AND COMPLIANCE TRAINING
As noted in the University’s Training and Development Policy staff are required to undertake
Contractual, mandatory and compliance training relevant to their role. This is particularly relevant during the probationary period.
The requirements are as follows:
• PGCertTHE/HEA Accreditation
• Welsh language
• Professional Qualifications
The University requires staff to undertake mandatory training as required by law such as health and safety training. Also, in order to comply with equality legislation that aims to identify, tackle and eradicate unlawful discrimination and to help the University develop an inclusive workplace, the first step is to increase staff; knowledge, understanding and skills in this area. Topics in this area therefore include:
On-line Equality Module (All staff)

Health and Safety Induction
• University Health and Safety Induction (All Staff)

If you wish to attend the session please contact email@example.com

All new staff should be briefed on health safety arrangements and controls which are applicable to your work environment. This will include your role and responsibilities and possibly such things as risk assessments and out of hours working and emergency procedures. A record will be kept locally.
• Specific Job / Role Specific Training (including additional Health and Safety training requirements)
This will have been discussed at College / School / Departmental level.
• Computer User Training (If you use a computer for your role)
If you have not completed this online training please go to this page. It is essential that you undertake the training and complete the self-assessment at the end.
Compliance training is training that is enshrined within University policies or it may have otherwise been determined as being good practice to which the University should adhere. It is concerned with minimising risk, providing assurance that policies are followed, and ensuring the University meets internal or external standards (which might include meeting needs arising from particular legislation).
