Learning Development: Staff: Home


The Learning Development team works with staff to ensure that the academic , mathematical and study skills of all students are supported and developed throughout their time at the University of Northampton.

The Embedded Curriculum and Student Support

The team liaises and consults with Faculty-based colleagues to deliver bespoke face-to-face, online and blended sessions. We also provide drop in sessions for students and one-to-one tutorials to further support and enhance academic skills. Please contact us to discuss how we can support your students with their academic skills within your module or programme.


We have a wide range of resources from study guides to online interactive materials that you can signpost to your students and embed within your NILE module. If you need to discuss a bespoke learning resource please contact us.

Skills Hub

We have a range of videos, guides and interactive tutorials available via our award winning Skills Hub, which cover the core academic skills that students will develop throughout their studies.
