There are many professional service roles across the higher and further education sectors, differing in both their organisational situations and the skillsets they need. We’ve created a collection of resources that Professional Services staff in different roles can access to reflect the digital capabilities they have – and need.
To access our list of recommended learning resources, you will need to log in to Moodle, our virtual learning environment. We’ve included a range of resources, from ‘How-to’ guides on the Microsoft website, to courses within LinkedIn Learning. As a member of staff, you have free access to LinkedIn Learning. Make sure you have registered before using any of the LinkedIn Learning courses.
All the resources have been mapped to the Professional Services in Education role profile that has been provided by Jisc. It covers a range of capabilities that may be required by professional services staff within an education setting, whatever their particular responsibilities or areas of expertise.
It’s important to stress that no one will have all the capabilities included in this profile. This is intended to demonstrate how new areas of practice are emerging and how you can use your digital skills in different areas of your role.
If you complete four or more resources within a specific digital capability, you will be eligible to apply for a range of digital badges. You can use these badges as evidence of your learning, that you can share with colleagues and wider staff within the University or via your LinkedIn profile to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.
