NERC Training Strategy
The four aims of the NERC Training Strategy are:
- To recognise that postgraduate training is a crucial first step in the development of a research career and that it is important that early-career researchers have the opportunity both to pursue their own lines of enquiry and to learn how to do so.
- To link training opportunities, particularly at doctoral level, to high-priority, high-quality research.
- To ensure that we identify skills priorities and gaps within our research base, both now and in the foreseeable future, and reflect this in the training we support.
- To ensure that the needs of employers for people with particular skills are taken into account in the training we support.
