The Key Skills Award for Postgraduate Researchers
The Durham Key Skills Award provides a means by which you can gain certification of your skills development. Based on national skills standards, participants collect evidence of their skills development, and submit a reflective portfolio for assessment.
Evidence can be drawn from academic and non-academic contexts…think creatively about the evidence you can include to show how you have developed communication, IT, analytical, teamworking, research and problemsolving skills. The Researcher Development Team will run a series of workshops and discussion sessions (lunch provided) to support you through this process.
