People and Organisational Development's response to the current COVID-19 crisis

POD wants to support you during this Coronavirus crisis and whilst we are currently unable to offer face-to-face learning, we continue to look out for remote learning opportunities that may be of interest as well as designing a number of virtual workshops and webinars to meet organisational need.  Our upcoming online workshops can be found below.

The table below pulls together a range of self-access courses, guides and toolkits, all of which can be accessed from home at a time that works for you. The University also has a subscription to LinkedIn Learning where you can access a variety of online learning for free.

If you have any questions or suggestions for how POD can best support you during this difficult period, please contact us at pod@admin.ox.ac.uk.


You may find it useful to download our short self-diagnosis tool which can help identify your priorities for learning.
