Mary Anne O’Carroll

As Staff Training, Learning + Development officer I work closely with staff and management to provide support, guidance and encouragement and to maximise opportunities for development of staff to meet their full potential. IADT prioritises investment in Staff training initiatives and I am responsible for implementing the IADT Staff Training + Development Policy and coordinating the design and delivery of training, learning and development events in areas including induction, performance and progression. I champion the importance of lifelong learning for all staff.

A significant aspect of my work is to organise on campus staff training courses and events. This includes courses required under legislation in the area of health and safety, general courses for staff from all areas across the campus, regular staff development days and initiatives in the areas of equality and diversity. I am involved in the Programme Team for a number of Level 9 Accredited Part-time Courses we run for staff in the area of Teaching and Learning. My role involves planning, organising, delivering, evaluating and reporting on staff training, learning and development initiatives in IADT. I work closely with my colleagues in other IoTs and am an active member of the IoT Staff Developers' Network (IOTSDN).
