Learning and Development Policy

EPSRC wants to be an efficient and effective organisation. As part of this, EPSRC wishes to be seen as an employer of choice and to be seen by all as an organisation that operates according to high ethical standards, policies and processes.

EPSRC aims to have a policy framework which is clear, accessible and compliant with current employment law, which conforms to the current Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service Code of Practice, and promotes equality and diversity in the workplace.


The aim of this policy is to define the framework for organisational and individual learning and development in EPSRC.


The purpose of the Learning and Development Policy is to provide an appropriate framework to facilitate the learning and ongoing development of EPSRC employees.

EPSRC recognises that learning and development should be managed and implemented using tools, techniques and processes which are consistent with its organisational values and comply with legal requirements.
