Over the past several months we have been busy conducting an audit of skills training resources and opportunities across the University, in order to produce a coordinated skills training programme for all PGRs. This audit has largely been completed and we are now in the process of planning the core skills training programme for the upcoming academic year. However, we are aware that what we consider to be essential training for you might not be what you actually want and need. As such, we would really appreciate your feedback and guidance on both centralised and local skills training provision. Please send us your comments on the events, seminars and workshops we have run this year, so that we can get a sense of what worked, what didn’t, and how we might improve upon what we’ve done as we plan next year’s activities.
