Capability Policy


The success of the University in achieving its strategic aims depends on effective contributions from all employees, focusing on quality and excellence. The University recognises the majority of employees meet or exceed the demands of their respective roles, however, capability issues can and do arise.

Capability at the University of Nottingham refers to matters of work performance. The purpose of the Capability Policy is to provide the key principles of intent regarding capability. This is supported by a Capability Procedure, which provides a transparent process to support managers in addressing capability issues and opportunities for conversations to take place.
