Professional Development

The Training and Professional Development unit promotes NOVA’s commitment to continuous learning and excellence by providing and encouraging access to a wide range of professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. We function as in-house consultants who foster collaborative partnerships to assess and evaluate training and professional development needs for administrative and professional faculty, managers, front line supervisors and staff. We develop and deliver customized training and professional development programs based on best practices, needs, essential job skills and wellness. We offer both classroom and online professional development opportunities that strengthen leadership and management skills, promote administrative support service excellence, and foster a positive work environment.

The benefits of our multilayered, responsive program delivery approach include:

  • Increased management effectiveness
  • Improved communication
  • Higher productivity and efficiency
  • Higher level quality of service delivery
  • More effective teamwork
  • Improved morale and job satisfaction
  • Improved retention
