Staff development




Kickstarter for Staff

What does it mean to view the world through the lens of other people? What’s the value in communicating across cultures, communities, identities and disciplines?

Following feedback from the Cultural Competency Student Kickstarter, we have launched a Cultural Competency Kickstarter aimed specifically at King’s Staff. The Staff Kickstarter takes less time (roughly 1 hour) to complete and contains information specific to King’s Staff.

The Cultural Competency Kickstarter will empower you to critically reflect on understanding your own identity, how you relate to others, and how you can make a positive difference at King’s and in the wider world.

Once you complete the Kickstarter, you will have the option to join the Staff Cultural Competency Champions Network via the feedback form. By joining, you will receive a special Cultural Competency email signature banner as well as invitations to events and access to resources and support that will help you champion Cultural Competency at King's. 

Enrol in the Cultural Competency Staff Kickstarter on KEATS (King’s log in required).


Co-creation of a CPD course in cultural competency is scheduled to begin in January 2023. Further information, including opportunities to participate in co-creational workshops and submit feedback, to be made available in 2023.

Staff Pilot Workshops 

Help shape the future of cultural competency at King’s.

Through joining interactive workshops, participating staff will actively help co-create a new cultural competency module. All members of staff are welcome to apply.

In joining these workshops, you will have the chance to learn more about cultural competency, reflect on your own experiences, and explore connected issues. You will also have the opportunity to gain leadership experience by working with colleagues from across the whole university to shape cultural competency at King’s, making connections beyond your own area and sharing what you learn.  

Please note that workshops for 2022 have now concluded. Information about future workshops will be released in 2023. To stay updated, you can check back here, or enrol on the Cultural Competency Staff Kickstarter to join our KEATS mailing list.
