The Policy

ADUC adheres to the principle of professional growth and has established a policy to improve and to keep current staff skills and qualifications.


It is the responsibility of staff members to develop and propose a Professional Development Plan leading to enhance skills and expertise in the area of specialization.

  1. The proposal should demonstrate professional growth and its expected impact on their field of endeavor.
  2. The Professional Development Plan must provide a description of the proposed activity and specify its goal(s).
  3. The Professional Development Plan must be discussed and submitted to the Unit Head for approval.
  4. After reviewing the plan, the Manager either approves it or requests revision of the plan together with his/her appropriate comments.
  5. Proposal for professional development must be submitted towards the end of the academic year at the time of review of the Staff evaluation process.


Upon completion of the professional development activity, the staff member is required to submit to the Manager a report providing evidence of achievement of professional growth and its expected effects on his/her work. ADUC supports staff professional development and appropriate financial resources are allocated to cater to the needs of the staff.
