University-based personal professional development
The university’s Institute for Academic Development offers many opportunities and courses for developing and improving various skillsets. Within this is the Beltane public engagement network, for people interested in making academic research more accessible for everyone.
Vitae is an international programme to support researchers. They are dedicated to realising the potential of researchers through transforming their professional and career development.
The UK Research Staff Association, in association with Vitae, “aims to provide a collective voice for research staff across the UK, through building researcher communities and influencing policy”.
