This form should be filled in with your supervisor(s). It will help you to structure and record the formal training needs
analysis that you conduct with your supervisor(s) at the start of the academic year and to formulate a strategy to meet
these needs. It will help the PhD Academy to design its professional development programme. It is also a mandatory
requirement of your ESRC scholarship.

In doing this you will need to consider:

1. Discipline specific training;


2. Methodological training; and
3. Personal development needs.

The skill set expected of PhD Students in the UK is summarised in the Vitae Researcher Development Framework
and in the ESRC Postgraduate Training and Development Guidelines.
