Personnel qualification and support in the academic and non-academic (i.e., science administration) areas have become increasingly important for universities over the past decade. Competence-oriented personnel development is therefore one of the strategic fields of action to which the university is also increasingly devoting itself and has established and continues to expand offers to support its personnel - i.e. its members and members of staff - in a targeted manner. The offers range from the acquisition of key competences, to university didactics, targeted further training and health management.
The University of Erfurt has expressed its holistic approach in a comprehensive overall concept for personnel development, with various sub-concepts.
The current offer of the University of Erfurt related to academic skills and key competences are aimed at all acaemic staff, thus at people interested in doing a doctorate, doctoral candidates, postdoctoral researchers and university lecturers.
The programme contains four fields: higher education didactic, interdisciplinary key competencies, mentoring and career coaching.
