The Researcher Development Programme, developed in consultation with researchers, aims to support the career and

Learning and development opportunities are provided at the three levels of the Research Career Framework
under these headings:
- Career Development
- Leadership and Management Training
- Publications, Funding and Intellectual Property
- Finance and Budgeting
- Project Management
- Teaching and Learning
The training supports researchers to develop their skills as outlined in the Competency Framework.
It is recommended that researchers attend a minimum of 4 days training per annum.
