In this section:
Enhancing the Research Performance and Employability of Researchers
To enable the achievement of an influential world-leading University research profile, The Graduate Training and Support Centre (part of the Staff and Departmental Development Unit) supports the development of research skills and research careers by contributing the postgraduate research component of the continuum of courses offered by SDDU spanning postgraduate researchers, postdoctoral research staff, early career academic staff and senior staff with research management and leadership responsibilities.
Our provision is guided by University strategy and national UK initiatives such as the Researcher development Statement and Framework the Researcher Concordat and European HR Excellence in Research (Awarded to the University in December 2010)
The University of Leeds offers a wide range of training and development opportunities for research students, through Faculties and specialist provision from services across campus (see the university researcher training and development 'portal' website for information on all the opportunities available to researchers). The activity of the Graduate Training and Support Centre (GTSC) of SDDU is covered by this website. Activity in GTSC is designed:
'To enable research students to develop their Research Performance, Employability, Professionalism and Engagement with Society'
and is open to all postgraduate research students at the university.
GTSC training and development staff are experienced researcher development professionals collectively with broad research experience.
GTSC has a record of excellence with innovative training and development opportunities that consistently receive outstanding feedback from participants. We are always looking to improve our provision and welcome feedback and comment from staff and research students
