Professional Development Request Form
Do you want to request professional development funds from your Vice President for a conference, training, certification, etc.? If so, simply fill out the form at this link.
The College’s Administrative Leadership Council (made up of the Administrative Committee, Associate Vice Presidents, and Directors) and Staff Forum leadership indicate that the top five requests for professional development from staff members are:
- Funds to attend or present at conferences and workshops;
- Increased frequency and levels of technology training;
- Certification training;
- Job-specific skills training; and
- Leadership skills development, including tools for running an effective meeting.
Priority allocation for staff development funds is given to 1) strategic professional development of staff to ensure that employees with promotional potential receive training to prepare them for the next step in their career progression at the College; 2) staff with credentials that require continuing education; and 3) staff presenting at a conference; and 4.) Technical skills training for new job related technology.
