Training for PGR supervisors
All supervisors of PGR students are required to attend either training for new PGR supervisors or refresher training at least once every five years (or more frequently if required to do so by funding bodies).
The process for this training involves completing a short Moodle course and attending a live synchronous workshop (either training for new supervisors, or one of several workshops available for refresher training if you are an existing supervisor and have previously completed the new supervisor training). For an overview of the suite of training workshops available, please consult the PDF below.
