PLEASE NOTE: All Academic Writing and Career Support 1-1’s have now been completed for Academic year 2019/2020, no further sessions are available. In September further 1-1’s will be considered but are subject to budgetary restraints.

Organisational Development (formerly LDC) is committed to providing Research Active Staff (Research-focussed, Teaching-focussed and Research & Teaching contracts) with the right kind of learning and development opportunities and support RAS needs. In addition to the RAS programme of funding and events/workshops/programmes we are currently providing the funding for individual 1-1 support with the aim of providing focused / specific support to meet RAS needs. The 1-1 support is funded by Organisational Development, RAS.

Academic Writing Support

With the continued success of the Academic Writing Programme; the workshop programme and Academic Writing Retreat 'Bootcamp', Organisational Development is providing funding for RAS to benefit from individual support. These sessions can be used to consult an academic writing expert on your academic writing challenges, such as existing draft applications, producing a piece of work from existing research or more broadly, planning your research/writing strategies. It does not provide a proof-reading service.
