Our vision is for Leicester Biomedical Research Centre to be a beacon of biomedical research excellence. We will continue to invest in our people through the establishment of a local academy, epitomising a research training environment and culture that supports the development and career progression of our staff.
We will further develop our research training environment and culture, facilitating the development, progression and retention of our staff. We recognise the particular barriers women face, and the importance of investing in initiatives at key career transition points where women are disproportionately affected. To this end, we have aligned with the Athena SWAN charter and support Leicester Women in Medicine.
We will provide broad, flexible opportunities for our staff to develop professionally through research, contributing to the training and development of the next generation of research leaders.
We are introducing the BRC-CRF Training Matrix. This has proved an effective and convenient way to identify training needs for new staff members, to direct them to the relevant resources and to review progress on a regular basis.
The UHL NHS Trust R&I Communications Team maintains a training calendar which takes information about forthcoming events, courses etc. from multiple sources, including NIHR and HEE. This can be found here: Training and Funding Opportunities
