Funding opportunity for Professional Staff at the University of Sydney

Professional staff who have been working at the University of Sydney for 12 months or more, may be eligible to gain central funding to pay for their CCE course if it will help them to achieve their next step career goals via the Professional Staff Development Fund.

Selected CCE courses can be funded centrally with manager’s approval by filling in the Professional development Fund (central funding) application form and sending it to Workforce Development. Please do this BEFORE registering to ensure you follow the procedure required to utilise central funding.

For more information on eligibility criteria, the application process and course availability, please see the Professional Development Program information on the Staff Intranet.

If your selected CCE course is not on the current PDP listing, but you fulfil all eligibility criteria and believe it will assist you to reach your next step career development goals, please contact hr.learning@sydney.edu.au. You will be asked to provide details of the course, how it will help you reach your next step and your managers approval. Please have this information ready.
