Clerical & Technical Training and Development

The Clerical &Technical Training and Development Committee, a joint committee of Local 34 members and University management staff, supports skill development and professional growth for Yale’s clerical and technical employees.

As the business needs of our work environment change, it’s important to routinely assess and develop both the soft skills and the business and system skills to meet evolving department needs. These pages provide self-assessment tools, learning resources, and forms for creating your learning and development plan.

There are many opportunities for Yale staff to bolster their skills and talents, explore different job families, or engage in career exploration and personal development. One can build on the skills that are relevant to the employee’s current position and develop skills and knowledge that are stepping stones to other jobs and job families.

Clerical and Technical Training

Be sure to watch for upcoming Clerical & Technical (C&T) training and development offerings, sponsored by Local 34 and the University, during the summer each year. Each C&T is contractually entitled to up to 30 hours of training time per year. C&Ts can record their time using the code “Training Release Time” in MyTime. 

Staff members who are interested in attending the kickoff event or classes should work with their supervisors to help plan for appropriate coverage within their department.
