Stirling Graduate School runs a range of training and skills development courses and workshops designed around the Vitae Researcher Development Framework.
The framework has been developed by and for researchers working in higher education as an aid to planning, promoting and enhancing professional and career development. It articulates the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of successful researchers and encourages all researchers to realise their potential.
The Researcher Development Framework (RDF) is structured into four domains covering the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of researchers.
Under each domain heading below is a list of our courses and workshops that have been mapped to the RDF (some courses map across more than one domain):
All sign up for SGS courses and workshops is carried out via Research Compass. Log into the portal and your Compass page, once you've done your skills analysis you'll be able to sign up to courses under each of the 12 Vitae sub-domains.
