Programme Workshop - each summer all DTP students are brought together for a half day workshop. The specific activities change each year, but in general students are given the opportunity to work on presentation, communication and networking skills and learn more about career opportunities and how to be best placed for a job post-PhD.

We also organise day trips to visit the five external Partner Institutes and a training feedback session, followed by drinks, which allows the newest cohort of students to tell us what they did (and didn't!) enjoy about the training they received during their first year in the Programme.

Feedback from current students has been that they appreciate a training or learning element to Programme events. They're also an excellent opportunity for DTP students—within their cohort, Theme, Department/Partner Institute—to meet-up and have fun.
