New Missenden Centre Training Programme

The programme runs from September 2011 to January 2012 and includes courses on PhD supervision, preparation for the REF and research bidding. The latter in particular looks innovative: it operates as an overlapping 3 day event, with the first two days for academics and the 2nd and 3rd day for research support staff. I’ve attended a Missenden Centre event before which was professionally run and offered valuable insights.

Usual prices for courses are £490 + VAT except where indicated. The full details including booking contacts are below:
