Training and development

Enabling the University and its employees to maximise their potential.


The Office for Human Resources Management & Development strives to provide opportunities for training and development to all UM employees. These services are provided to cultivate a learning environment for employees whilst continuing to develop and enhance their workplace skills and consequently improving job effectiveness and performance throughout the University.  

Training is provided to members of staff starting from newly recruited employees, by commencing with Orientation and progressing to provide training in core competences and specialised fields. These courses are specifically designed to meet the needs of the University and the employees. Certain short courses are especially designed to cater for the specific needs of individual departments and employee streams. Training is also delivered in conjunction with UM academic entities, Administrative Directorates and Units and in collaboration with several governmental and non-governmental organisations.
