Vitae workshop: Enhancing Professional Effectiveness

Posted on

Vitae are running a workshop in Newcastle at the end of November, focusing on supporting new researchers to be effective in their work. Vitae

Research Staff Futures: Enhancing Professional Effectiveness aims to help new Research Staff to make an effective start.  It focuses on two important themes during the transition from doctoral candidate to employee; being more effective in the face of diverse and competing responsibilities and working more effectively with others.

In our experience, researchers get a lot from the vitae courses, so this one is a definite recommend!

Deadline for booking is 14th November, with more details on the vitae website.

    Thank you so much for promoting this course to your network and I agree with all of your comments about the courses being worthwhile! This is a Vitae regional pilot for the Vitae YNE Hub and places are open to other HEIs in the Yorkshire & North East in addition to Newcastle. We have implemented an application process as places are limited. Therefore, as this is an application process, places are not automatically guaranteed. We are asking researchers to supply a short statement detailing why they should be selected to attend the course. The application process will close on 14th November, after which time we will contact applicants as soon as possible to confirm if their application has been successful. This process on the Vitae website is for applicants from regional HEIs and Newcastle are managing the places for Newcastle applicants. Please do get in touch with either the researcher development team at Newcastle or the YNE Hub to apply for a place.

    Please note that this course is for early career researchers and research staff. It is not suitable for PhD students.

    Thanks again for promoting this Vitae resource.

    Joanne Warner
    Vitae Hub Manager for Y&NE
