Training opportunity for PhD students: The Manchester GradSchool: Crossing Borders.

This year’s Gradschool is now open for applications! The exciting three and half day free training opportunity will be held on Tuesday 15th-Friday 18th May 2018.

During The Manchester GradSchool: Crossing Borders event you will learn and practice techniques and approaches to overcome a wide spectrum of creative challenges, from “I need an idea right now” to much tougher nuts to crack that will need many weeks of sustained creative thinking.

Now in its twelfth year, this popular training opportunity is open to all PGR students across all disciplines and creates situations that allow you to work on real cases with real colleagues to ensure that you get the most out of the session.

Alongside, evidence based creativity training, the unique 3.5 day structure of the GradSchool, allows you to intensively practice relationship building and networking, teamwork, giving and receiving feedback, creativity and innovation and communication and career management skills. Each team is supported with hands-on coaching from a dedicated facilitator throughout the course.
