Your career

Upon starting at Kingston University you will automatically be invited to one of our 'welcome to Kingston' events. These interactive sessions offer you the opportunity to understand the University better and meet other new staff.

Topics covered include:

  • our colleagues;
  • our students;
  • our values;
  • our successes;
  • academic delivery; and
  • your development.

Supporting personal development

Our staff are the most important resource we have. We want you to be continual learners and so our performance and development appraisal scheme means every member of staff will have a personal development plan. To help you fulfil your potential, the University provides a range of central training programmes, as well as locally managed development funds.

If you want to add to your qualifications, there is a staff sponsorship scheme helping towards fees for further study at the University. The scheme is open annually, and successful applicants can receive tax-free funding for up to three years.

If you're a member of a professional body, we'll pay up to £150 toward the costs of your annual subscription.

Centre for Higher Education Research and Practice

Whilst contributing to the establishment of higher education studies as a discipline in its own right, the Centre for Higher Education Research and Practice (CHERP) supports staff in achieving the highest level of professionalism and scholarship at all stages of their career. This include:

  • Kingston Academic Practice Standards framework
    The Kingston Academic Practice Standards (KAPS) framework is intended for all academic and other professional staff involved in supporting learning and teaching, and to encourage professional development in this area.
  • Academic programmes
    Although still in development, CHERP aims to deliver different programs in higher educational professional practices, including learning and teaching.

Kingston in the community

Our staff and students are active in the local community, offering 3,500 hours of service to good causes each year through our award-winning volunteering scheme.

We also have an extensive school visiting programme, offering educational support and encouraging local children to aim for university, particularly those whose family have no previous experience of higher education.

Civic engagement

Niamh Godley"The move from Ireland to Kingston was a huge change and everyone has been really friendly which has helped me to settle in quickly. Colleagues have been so helpful and supportive in my initial training and my career path and I have been lucky enough to work with some fantastic people since joining."
