This workshop looks at some of the issues for those aiming to develop a career in academia. It is designed for post-doctoral staff and staff in the early years of their careers. The outcome should be a clearer understanding of how promotional procedures operate, and the start of an action plan to achieve longer term career goals.

Ambition to succeed is great; aspiration, dedication and enthusiasm are great. Progress is undoubtedly helped by an agenda, plans, a strategy and objectives. The point of these workshops is to help colleagues move to practical issues that can assist in career management.
