Training Needs Analysis (TNA)

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. From 2017, the ESRC requires that all students must complete a training needs analysis on an annual basis as a condition of their studentships. This will help you work with your supervisor to develop bespoke training and development objectives each year.
