Developing Management Skills pilot Programme launched for 2013
Developing Management Skills is a new pilot programme that has been designed with the aim of providing people with a toolkit of essential management skills.
This initial pilot involves selected applicants from Academic Division which is co-sponsoring the scheme with Learning and Development.
The University’s commitment to pursuing good practice in researcher development has now been defined in a formal action plan using the input from researchers in all faculties. Continued monitoring and improvement against the plan will enable achievement of the European Commission’s HR Excellence in Research Badge.
