Scheme for supporting FBE new parents

What is SSNP?

The Scheme for Supporting FBE New Parents (SSNP) aims for:

  • Improving the experience (e.g., health, wellbeing, work-life balance, career progression) of FBE staff who are new parents*
  • Effectively attracting and retaining FBE staff
  • Improving gender equality and increasing woman representation among academics
  • Enhancing a culture of diversity and inclusion at work and beyond

SSNP supports FBE new parents under three pillar initiatives:

  • Support/Workshops/Networking
  • Information hub that provides information relating to parental leave and beyond
  • Work relief for FBE academics who are new parents
    • Taken within one year of the birth if the new parent academic does not take parental leave or taken within one year after returning to work following parental leave.
