This face to face course is run by the Researcher Academy
The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you.
Target Audience: PGR's/ECR's
Have you ever thought about your strengths? Understanding your strengths can help you decide what career would suit you best.
What are your strengths and why is it important to know these and showcase them during the recruitment process and in the workplace?
During this workshop you will have the opportunity to evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses and consider how displaying increased self-awareness can help you in your future career planning.
See this website for more details:
Process: Practical workshop with interactive elements and group based activities.

Importance of booking commitment
When booking on to a Researcher Academy short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.
It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. The Researcher Academy maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Researcher Academy courses and will affect considerations for Researcher Academy funded opportunities.
