For those who don't yet have an organisation to partner with under the DTC internship support scheme, the Social Sciences Doctoral Internship Programme may be more appropriate, as Careers Service support is provided for students to help find an organisation to partner with.

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.
