You are expected to participate in certain Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP training and researcher development activities. For example, in the first year of your award you are expected to complete a Training Needs Analysis via Inkpath, a skills and career development app, and to participate in five days of OOC DTP foundations training.
During your time as an OOC DTP student, you are expected to undertake at least ten days of training and researcher development activity each year. You should report participation and give feedback on events through Inkpath.
The Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP aims to:
- provide innovative research-led training of the highest quality;
- enable student engagement outside the academy;
- incorporate a strong international component into its researcher development.
The OOC DTP training programme has been developed around four interlinked and themed strands:
- Core: enhancing existing personal and professional development schemes and generic and employability skills training;
- Future Humanities: equipping students with the skills of new and developing arts and humanities research and enabling engagement with innovative ideas in research and practice;
- Expanding Horizons: engaging students with emerging technologies and interdisciplinary research, looking beyond the traditional approaches and boundaries of arts and humanities;
- Engaged Communication: enhancing students’ abilities to communicate and share their research with diverse audiences both within and outside the academy.
