Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: All staff

Join us in this short webinar to find the answers to the six most commonly asked questions related to our staff carers:

  • Am I/is my member of staff a carer?
  • How do I/my member of staff tell the University that they are a carer?
  • Can I ask or be asked if I'm a carer?
  • What type of changes can carers request to balance work with caring responsibilities?
  • How should managers deal with requests from carers to changes to working arrangements?
  • What practical support can our carers access?

This session is aimed at both carers and their line managers and delivered by the HR team and the Chair of the Strathclyde Carers Group.  You'll also have the opportunity to ask questions during and after the session.

Delivered By: Alison Locke, HR Manager & Dawn Watt, HR Adviser


The session will be delivered on Skype for Business and joining instructions will be sent prior to the session. In the meantime you might find these resources useful to familiarise yourself with the software:

Cancellation Policy

When applying for a course, you should note that there will be a £50* to your department if you cancel within 5** working days or you do not attend, and a £25 charge for cancellations/ non-attendance between 6 and 10 working days. There will be no charge for cancellation made 10 or more working days before the event. Notifications should be made to OSDU@strath.ac.uk

A department is welcome to send someone else in your place if they wish without incurring a charge, providing that person has the necessary pre-requisites for the course.

*This is the standard charge for cancellation or non-attendance of course of 1 days duration or less. For some courses there may be a higher cancellation charge and if this is the case you will be advised of this at the time of booking.

**Any bookings made within 10 days of the event will incur the charges as specified.
