Researcher Skills Development Programme

Research, Business and Innovation delivers Invest in Yourself, which offers skills development and training to all UWE Bristol staff engaged in research.

The programme supports staff to develop broad skills in areas such as research methods, writing, impact and engagement, and bidding. Whether you are an Early Career Researcher, an established researcher or a teaching academic looking to develop your research activity, you are invited to join us.

We also welcome research support staff seeking to deepen their expertise.

Most longer workshops are offered face-to-face, allowing you to meet colleagues within and outside your discipline and providing support and networking opportunities. We also host a number of short online sessions, including our 'Focus on…' series which gives you essential information and starting points on key topics.
