Learning & Development

AUE Training Fund

Now that we all seem to be tentatively embracing the “new normal” the AUE are pleased to announce the return of the Training Fund!

The AUE are committed to helping it’s members to develop their professional career or to support a junior engineer or apprentice in their team. The fund is not intended to replace institutions’ obligation to provide statutory training, however it can be used to support training/travel/accommodation if there is a specific path the individual wishes to develop in their career or teams.

With the recent disruption through Covid-19 , there was no Spring or Summer fund this year. Therefore to mitigate the missed Spring/Summer funds, the Autumn fund is now open and we will be offering 15 applicants the opportunity to receive funding of up to £500.

The closing date for Autumn applications is 21st December 2020.

If you would like to apply, please complete the attached form and send to info@aue.ac.uk

If you are nominating someone please make sure that an AUE member is supporting the application.


AUE Learning and Development Strategy

The AUE learning and development (L&D) strategy is an organisational strategy that articulates its membership Knowledge , Abilities , Training , Experience, capabilities, skills or competencies required, and how these can be developed, to ensure a sustainable, successful organisation for the benefit of its members.

The strategy will be embodied within the training ethos of the AUE and all members are urged to take a look at the draft document on the AUE website (attached at the bottom of this page).

It is hoped that a portal will be available on the website called ‘AUE Academy’, and it is where a lot of information about training, CPD sessions and webinars will be posted.


Call for Ideas

The AUE Academy also are looking for new ideas of training/courses to support in the sector.    

If you are willing to organise a course and offer additional places to the wider membership, then the AUE will be willing to look at subsidising the training.


You know of topics that would warrant a day’s training that benefits the sector (but isn’t necessarily something your institution has to provide)


You know some really good speakers that we could work with to offer sector specific training.

Please get in contact: david.morley@ntu.ac.uk or info@aue.ac.uk.
