NEWS TO USE

Mandatory supervisory training:

The Division of Human Resources has revised the Professional Development for University Personnel Policy HR 1.51. This revision includes a mandatory supervisory training curriculum for all supervisors of university staff hired into a supervisory position after January 1, 2010.

New registration process:

The Division of Human Resources, Organizational and Professional Development Office has launched a new, automated registration system that will enable employees to:

  • Register for multiple courses
  • Receive confirmations and waiting list notifications
  • Track their registrations
  • Monitor their progress in supervisory courses that are offered (LEAD and LEAD 2)
  • See their training record for LEAD and LEAD 2 courses

To view your current training record for LEAD and LEAD 2 courses, you may log in here. Please note, in order to log into this system, you must have already created a training account. If you have not already created one, all you need to do is register for your first Professional Development course here. Training records for courses outside of the LEAD program may be obtained by contacting the Organizational and Professional Development office at 777-6578.

Please note that registrations via telephone, fax, email and hand delivery will no longer be accepted as a form of registration for courses. All employees will be prompted to create their own training account by logging into the system and self-registering for courses. As a reminder, employees should always obtain supervisory approval to attend training courses offered through Organizational and Professional Development.

 



WELCOME to your online guide of professional development opportunities at the University of South Carolina.

The mission of Professional Development is to lead and support the development of knowledgeable, skillful, and productive University employees through lifelong learning.

The University's professional development programs are designed to improve individual and organizational performance and help USC achieve overall institutional goals. Training programs have been carefully developed to help employees increase their effectiveness by building and refining job skills and by gaining greater knowledge of USC operations. Developmental programs prepare personnel for increased or new responsibilities and broaden individuals as a whole.

USC professional development programs:

  • Help employees adjust to new work situations more easily and create a greater sense of community through a systematic orientation program.

  • Provide knowledge of the appropriate application of operating procedures so employees are able to function more quickly and efficiently in various University departments.

  • Encourage employees to hone skills by providing instruction and practice in work-related areas such as leadership, teambuilding, writing, or computing.

  • Improve interpersonal skills through human relations training and increase productivity by improving communications between managers and employees.

  • Foster good employee relations and reduce turnover by sponsoring programs that lead to greater job satisfaction and promotional opportunities.

  • Provide information about University policies and procedures.

  • Enhance the quality of work life for USC employees.
