For compliance with Data Protection and Freedom of Information legislation it is important for the University to have a record of what has been destroyed, when, why and on whose authority.
Each department is responsible for its own records retention, storage and timely disposal and must comply with the University guideline before disposing of any records.
Records to be destroyed must be approved and documented in a record destruction form.
A step by step guide and the record destruction forms are available on the MMU Records Management Website at:

This short updating session covers two important areas for programme teams recruiting and planning for 2012: student finance and employability.
e are all aware that the announcement of £6,000-£9,000 tuition fees will bring radical changes to student finance for undergraduate students starting full-time study in September 2012. This session run by Recruitment and Admissions staff, will cover the key issues for student recruitment, the advantages and drawbacks of the new fee regime and student support package.
Penny Renwick, PVC, will then update colleagues on the latest approaches to embedding employability, followed by a short session to introduce the new Employability Online resource, provide an opportunity to discuss how this can link to employability embedded in the curriculum and encourage students to improve their prospects on graduation.

Calling all staff!
Did you know, around 2.6% of adults in England experience phobias (Mind, Mental Health Organisation).
Next Monday, 10 October is World Mental health day and the Equality & Diversity (E&D) team are highlighting this event with the aim to raise the profile and remove the stigma of Mental Health. There will be an information giving stall on the actual day (Monday, 10 October) in the Pennine Suite, 5th Floor, All Saints, where amongst other things staff will be able to take away useful literature and information on support available to them around mental health issues.
There will be members of the team with the stall over the lunchtime period (12 – 2 pm) if you have any questions around support available at MMU.
There will also be information available on the E&D website including tips on how to keep your mind healthy, case studies of people who have experience of living with a mental health condition and useful links/contacts.
