Researcher Development Framework: Using the RDF to Plan and Evidence Your Skills
Domain: B2 Self-management

The Researcher Development Framework was developed by Vitae in collaboration with the higher education sector and other stakeholders (and endorsed by the Research Councils) as a tool for planning, promoting and supporting the personal, professional and career development of researchers. It describes the attributes of a successful researcher and provides a universal language for communicating your capabilities. This workshop will explain how to use the RDF (and other reflective tools) to plan your skills development so that you can get the most out of your PhD.

During the session you will:

- learn how to conduct a ‘skills audit’ to assess your strengths and identify areas for further development
- start writing personal targets to monitor your progress
- be introduced to the idea of reflective practice
- consider what you can do to build up your CV over the next few years while you’re doing your PhD
- learn how to describe your skills and experience for future job applications

Note that there will be some overlap between this session and ‘Starting Out’ Induction material.
