Target Audience: Research staff and anyone else with questions about having a development conversation as part of their ADR
This is a live online event.
Talking about your career and professional development is a key component of the annual Accountability & Development Review (ADR) process and especially important for those in early-career and fixed-term positions.
For Research Staff and their managers in particular, there are new obligations from the revised Researcher Development Concordat which request support, time and opportunity for Research Staff to undertake at least 10 days’ professional development time per year.
To make sure that, as an ADR reviewee, you understand what this expectation means and how to have a constructive ADR conversation about your career and professional development, this session is designed to answer any questions you may have.
This is a drop-in event, so you can join anytime during the designated timeframe. Please make sure that you bring along your questions and we can address them within the session (confidentially in a private breakout room, if preferred).
Please note that there will not be any presentations or other content delivery. To find more general information about the ADR process as a reviewee as well as the new expectations regarding professional development conversations for Research Staff, please have a look at the available online resources:
