In addition to the sources of funding on the other pages in this section, it is possible that University employees may obtain funding from the Staff Learning Scheme, which is run by the Oxford Learning Institute.
The Staff Learning Scheme is designed to provide staff of Oxford University with financial support for relevant courses and other learning activities for which they would otherwise have to pay. Full and part time employees are eligible to apply, if they meet the criteria for the scheme.
A synopsis on how the Staff Learning Scheme works follows; full information on the Staff Learning Scheme can be found here: http://www.learning.ox.ac.uk/cdr/scheme/
University staff should be able to demonstrate that the course will help them to develop within their role at the University and be of broader benefit to their department; or that, alternatively, it will enable them to acquire new skills and deal with changes in responsibilities or a new role.
Applying for funding from the Staff Learning Scheme consists of three basic steps:
As a general rule the SLS panel will grant 50% of the total costs involved, or £2,000, whichever is the lower.
