Training and development for research staff

Training and development opportunities are offered in a variety of places within the University, with the Graduate School taking a particular lead in supporting our research staff development. We offer training in transferable skills through our Researcher Development Programme (RDP) for research staff and coordinate information and support through a range of activities, including one-to-one coaching.

Our Researcher Development Programme (RDP) provides training that reflects the national Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF), and researchers are encouraged to make use of the extensive information and resources available through Vitae about this and other aspects of career development
