Professional Development Framework

The PGR Professional Development Framework is based on six key themes and is intended to introduce coherence across the institution while recognizing disciplinary differences. All postgraduate researchers should have fair and comparable access to professional development opportunities that will allow them to:

  • identify and develop specific skills;
  • acquire the knowledge and expertise to achieve standards of excellence in their research;
  • be competitive in their professional life as they move into future employment or study.

The Warwick Framework has been developed in line with the UK Research Council’s (UKRI) expectation that all postgraduate researchers will have a minimum of ten days of professional development and skills activity and that the provision of transferable skills should form a fundamental part of doctoral training.
