23rd and 24th of January 2019
Transferable skills training: This activity will be undertaken in a framework which ensures coverage over the 4 transferable skills areas (https://www.vitae.ac.uk/): i) Knowledge and intellectual abilities, ii) Personal effectiveness, iii) Research governance and organisation, and iv) Engagement, influence and impact. UGLA was one of the first universities to employ a dedicated member of staff involved in the development and enhancement of the University’s provision of these key skills. UGLA’s Dr Elizabeth Adams will therefore take the lead in the provision of transferable skills to the TeraApps cohort – see letter of commitment. The training programme is wide-ranging and includes academic writing, presentation skills, creative thinking, project management, public engagement and how to work in an international environment. It enhances student employability through these sessions, and teaches them to lead training initiatives or conferences.
