Researcher Development Skills Framework

It is important for researchers (including graduate researchers) to develop generic (also called transferrable, professional and soft) skills for degree completion, career progression, personal development and employability.

The Researcher Development team have designed the Researcher Development Skills Framework (RDSF) below. This articulates key areas in which researchers need to develop skills during their candidatures and/or careers.

The RDSF allows researchers to audit skills and identify gaps, and aligns with the UC ReD training program which provides opportunities to build skills and fill gaps.

For more information about the RDSF consult this mini-guide.
