This training session gets PhD students to think openly, imaginatively and rigorously about their working futures. It culminates inall participants identifying a set of short and long-term objectives, the actions they will take to achieve those objectives, and the obstacles that stand in their way. The session is framed around the following questions:
What transferable skills have you built up while doing a PhD?
What is your skills base, for any career?
Who ARE you and who MIGHT you be?
Participants work both collectively and individually – we design the activities to ensure that there is time and space to think in new ways about career paths. Key to the workshop is that participants challenge their own and each other’s thinking. Playful interaction is integral to the atmosphere and success of the workshop.
We use interaction, storytelling techniques and self-reflective exercises to guide participants through the day, which is built around them creating a narrative for their career. Participants both speak and write their ideas, constantly re-drafting, refining, distilling and sometimes completely re-thinking. It is not a smooth path through the day but all participants come away with one chosen set of objectives, actions and obstacles.
Places can be booked via the workshop booking form on the website (linked below).
The deadline for booking a place will be Thursday 22nd June at 12pm.
This workshop will be limited to a maximum of 12 attendees and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
