I have worked at Warwick for over 16 years in a number of roles both within central University and within departments. I re-joined the Graduate School as PGR Professional Development Officer in December 2016 and am working closely with Careers and Skills on a current project for PGR Professional Development including developing a new platform called Warwick SkillsForge.
- Support students in their professional development and review how the PGR Professional Development Framework is being utilised within departments;
- Deliver a platform (Warwick SkillsForge) for Postgraduate researchers that will be a single online portal for being able to: undertake a DNA (Development Needs Analysis), book onto training, record their own activities, have an evidence base of professional development, and be able to record and reflect;
- Ensure the PGR Professional Development Framework and Warwick SkillsForge is communicated to University stakeholders and review how it is embedded within academic departments and whether both are fit for purpose.
