PIRLS 2015


Swansea University participated in this year's Principal Investigators and Research Leaders Survey. 37% of PIs completed the survey, which is well above the national average of 25%. Thank you for your participation, which will be used to inform future planning. As a result of the Swansea survey we will be:

  • Increasing provision of "Managing at Swansea" line manager training, with specific courses for academics
  • Incorporating coaching skills training into line manager training
  • Improving recruitment support for PIs with additional training and advice
  • Offering increased leadership development opportunities
  • In line with the aims of the PSR, improving the way that the human resources department as a whole support academic staff
