This blended programme will be based on an online career management programme for researchers, created by expert researcher careers advisers from the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Sheffield; it is hosted by the Open University’s Futurelearn platform as a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The learning community will include Cardiff researchers from across disciplines, as well as other students from across the UK. We will provide space for you to discuss ideas, knowledge and insights about yourself and your future career plan, stimulated by the four short modules in the online learning course. You will work through parts of the first and last modules in our computer suite, complemented by practical activities which will be supported by experienced careers and researcher development staff. This will include a review of your CV. You will also complete two online modules between the face to face sessions, at your own time and pace.

By the end of the programme you will:
* Recognise the significant individual influences in your personal career decisions;
* Have explored career options outside academic research;
* Understand progression in an academic career and what this could mean for you;
* Receive personal support in building your CV, application and interview skills.

You may come away with a clearer vision of your future career journey or simply the areas you need to concentrate on right now.
