The Staff Researcher Development Programme (RDP) encompasses clusters of workshops that provide you with both the general and subject-specific knowledge, skills and attributes needed to be an effective researcher. It also incorporates the research supervisor training programme and the research leadership training programme. Collectively, the RDP provides a useful framework to identify and work towards your evolving research aspirations and goals.

In order to make the most of the Researcher Development Programme, we encourage you to assess your current knowledge, skills and abilities through self-reflection and discussion with your line manager. This will enable you to identify your individual researcher development needs and the workshops that best support you and the research areas you wish to develop. 

Sessions are delivered by specialists in different fields from Institutes across the University and those at the Research School.
