Training Needs Analysis
By the time you complete your PhD programme you should be a fully qualified researcher with an extensive set of subject specific and more generic skills. Subject-specific training will be delivered within your Department, School or PhD programme. The BGRS is here to help you access the generic skills component of your training and to support your professional development.
To help you track your skills development, and to ensure that all key training areas are addressed you are asked to complete Training Needs Analysis.
The framework for analysing your training needs is the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF) which has been established for use by doctoral students interested in pursuing an academic career or considering applying the skills developed during their PhD in another sector.
