Broadening Horizons Workshop 2009

22 - 23 June 2009, Nettle Hill Training and Conference Centre, Brinklow Road, Ansty, Coventry CV7 9JL

A two day career development workshop for early career researchers.

The Broadening horizons programme is an interactive and intensive two-day programme that provides research staff with the opportunity, skills and tools to help them proactively engage in their own career development.

The programme enables research staff to gain a clearer self-orientation of where they are within their career and to consider what their next steps might be, whether their aspirations are to remain in research and/or academia or to move into other areas.

Participants will work in learning groups to work on a range of activities, supported by an experienced team of facilitators. The programme objectives are for participants to:

  • gain a sense of direction and progression
  • widen their understanding of career
  • better understand their own career situation
  • develop tools and techniques to explore their skills, motivations, values and talents and how these can be applied to their career planning
  • consider potential jobs they might like to explore further
  • consider what makes an effective CV
  • commit to an action plan for their personal and career development.

The programme has been developed to ensure that it has the flexibility to be delivered to researcher staff from a mixture of disciplines.

There is no cost to individuals for this course. For further information and to book a place see the Vitae website.
