Developing your Skills
At Swansea we provide a wide range of opportunities to help you develop your skills and talents
Development & Training Services (DTS) offer courses and workshops throughout the year aimed at supporting and improving professional skills. Course information can be found in the training brochure, and regular e-mail alerts across campus keep you informed as well.
Events cover generic skills areas, such as personal effectiveness, interpersonal and communication skills, and managing teams,as well as more specifically work-related training such as first aid, report writing, and recruitment and selection.
The Department for Research and Innovation provide a range of support to help ensure that any of your funding or grant applications are structured before submission to have the highest possible chance of success.
DTS work with a range of other training providers across campus, such as ISS, Sustainability and the Safety Office to create an exceptional training and professional development resource to underpin your research and career aspirations. Swansea is a forward looking and ambitious University, with a genuine interest in developing your talents.
All of our training courses are mapped to the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF). The RDF covers 4 areas or "domains" of learning, which are broken down below. The Vitae website has more information about the RDF. If you would like advice on how a particular course maps to the RDF, please contact us.
