Training the Trainer

The Researcher Development Unit within the Graduate School would like to offer post-docs the opportunity to be trained to design and deliver training courses, leading to the possibility of being paid to deliver training courses for the Researcher Development Unit.

Previous participants on this programme have used the teaching experience gained through to work towards teaching qualifications and to gain lectureship positions, leading to this programme being shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Award for Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers in November 2013.

Due to the popularity of this opportunity and the limited number of places that we can offer, places will be allocated through an application process (please see below for details).

Training the Trainers course
Thursday 6th March (full day) AND Thursday 20th March (half day) This interactive practice-based training course will provide participants with the teaching and presentation skills that they need to design and deliver their own training courses. This course is open to all post-docs, regardless of whether or not they would be interested in delivering training courses for the Researcher Development Unit.

Delivering Training Courses
Subject to successful completion of the Training the Trainers course, post-docs can apply to deliver training courses for the Researcher Development Unit. Post-doc trainers would be mentored by an experienced trainer throughout the process and would be paid £50 per hour of training delivery time.
