Does the institution make available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year?:
A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :
The OD department does not specifically make available training or professional development (PD) opportunities in sustainability. Eligible employees may apply for PD funding up to $1000 per fiscal year to engage in PD opportunities that may have a sustainability focus. However, this is not tracked.
As per Sheridan’s Human Resources website:
“Any type of professional development is available to staff based on the following criteria:
the relationship to the applicant's primary roles(s) with Sheridan relevance to the applicant's field of expertise or professional designation how the activity complements Sheridan's strategic direction.”
There are only internal website links related to this; however, we have created 3 documents that are accessible on the public document in the new employee welcome package that outline briefly the existence of this fund. https://www.sheridancollege.ca/~/media/Files/Sheridan%20College/Working%20at%20Sheridan/Careers%20at%20Sheridan/New%20Hires/professional%20development%20summary%20of%20benefits%20support%20revised%20oct%202013.pdf
