Development opportunities and useful resources
Our vision is to provide an environment for clarity, honesty and a renewed perspective for our research staff. Time to learn and to reflect. Space to explore choices. We therefore offer a range of opportunities to empower you to thrive by developing your skills and by considering your career development.
This section provides an overview of our course offer. Our workshops are aimed to support you with your career development and include a range of topics from presentation skills to being strategic about your career.
Research in practice
Research in practice is aimed at all staff working on a research project, including academic staff currently holding, or planning to apply for research funding. This programme practically supports teams in the way that they do research by offering a combination of focused information sessions and more in-depth development workshops.
