We expect our ESRC scholars to develop a personalised plan for developing the research and leadership skills they need.
What is a Training Needs Analysis (TNA)?
Throughout your degree, you are encouraged to reflect and think strategically about your ongoing development as a researcher. We expect you to complete a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) at the start of your studies and thereafter on an annual basis. This will help you work with your supervisor to develop bespoke training and development objectives each year. More information on the process and the TNA form can be found here.
