Training and Personal Development

Shakespeare has been the starting-point for the CAPITAL Centre initiative. The ability to think from the other person’s point of view is the core of Shakespeare’s creativity. It is the cardinal law of the Shakespearean universe that human relationships, both personal and social, depend on a process of dialogue. In Shakespeare's work every position has its counter-position and his characters grow—in both intelligence and moral discrimination—through a process of continuous engagement with new problems and unexpected choices.

The Centre's pedagogic model offers some of the most important transferable skills we can give our students: the ability to think oneself into the other person’s point of view, to work as part of a team, and to find answers through the process of framing good questions. These are essential to every sphere of employment and every dimension of civil society.

CAPITAL is responsible for a range of training and development opportunities for postgraduate students and academic staff. Please follow the links on the left for more information.
