The Training Needs Analysis will help you identify skills you need to work on or develop, and your supervisor can also provide support and guidance for your development needs. You should complete your Training Need Analysis within SAM, if you want to complete it on paper first there is a full version in the Research Training Programme module in MyBeckett.
The Graduate School'sResearch Training Programme (RTP) will equip you with the skills and competencies required to complete your research degree. Sessions include workshops and seminars such as finding research information, using NVivo or SPSS to analyse your data, Writing at Research Level and managing your literature using Reference Management software.
