Career Development and Training
Our training enables you to develop the skills and career management tools to give you greater choice over the future direction of your career
Our training for doctoral students and research staff is designed to make you the best researcher you can be: to give you the skills and experiences that you need to stand out from the crowd. Don’t just trust our word for it though - our training courses get consistently excellent reviews from participants: the average feedback on our training sessions was 8.4 / 10 over the last two years.
Our pages are focused around who you are, so whether you are a doctoral student or a member of our research staff within MPLS, you should be able to find the right information relating to you easily. If you need anything else, then please get in touch.
