Training & Development:  Booking a course

Before applying for a course and completing the on-line course application form, it is important to consider what you want to achieve from the course.  This will involve asking yourself a number of questions including:

  • what do I hope to gain from the course?
  • how will I apply the learning and skills through the course of my job?

The answers to these questions should be discussed with your line-manager and/or Head of School/Unit.

Any queries regarding Training and Development can be made by by emailing training.development@dcu.ie or phoning ext. 5904/7377/5147. Participants selected to attend a course will be notified by e-mail.

  • the outcomes of the course are appropriate to your current needs and your training and development history
  • you and the head of school/manager indicate how the learning and skills from the course will be brought back to and supported
       in the workplace
  • there is a balance of schools/units, grades and gender on each course
