The seminar is being held in response to staff ideas submitted under the Supporting our Staff work stream. It is designed to introduce the concept of CoPs and will look at what they are and how they can support collaboration, communication, peer to peer support and career development. There will also be an opportunity to hear from UCL (University College London) and UIS (University Information Services) about how they have introduced CoPs and the benefits they have brought, plus their future plans.

Why attend? The seminar is an ideal opportunity for you to find out more about CoPs and discuss with your colleagues how they can support the work of our professional services staff. Your opinion really counts and we are very keen to hear your thoughts and ideas.
