Supervisor Training 2024

A group of 3 researchers gathered around a table having a discussion

Supervisors of SGSAH DTP and CDA funded students must attend one Supervisors’ Induction workshop led by SGSAH. This is mandatory for supervisors who have not completed one of our supervisor training sessions in the last three years. Supervisors are asked to reserve a place prior to the nomination being submitted.

Mark your calendars – the dates for our 2024 Supervisor Training sessions are:

  • Thursday 5th September 2pm - 3.15pm (DTP Open Competition)
  • Monday 9th September 2pm - 3.15pm (Partnership PhDs - for CDA & ARCS supervisors)
  • Tuesday 10th September 2pm - 3.15pm (DTP Open Competition)

The training sessions will be held online via Zoom. You will be sent the joining link in advance, as well as some pre-records to watch before the live sessions in September. Please register via the button below.
