Supervise for Success

A key focus of Learning and Development at ACU is to provide a variety of opportunities for all staff. This year, we are launching the Supervise for Success program for our supervisors.

The program has been designed to provide supervisors with a range of practical and foundational people-management development opportunities aligned to the ACU Capability Framework, with a focus on refreshing or resetting techniques, staying up to date with people management responsibilities and processes, and networking with your peers.

The Supervise for Success program will run virtually from 5-19 November, with six modules offered in 2020 and more to be communicated for 2021.
