Queen's University, Belfast
Queen's University Belfast is a member of the Russell Group of 24 leading UK research-intensive universities, providing world-class education underpinned by world-class research.
Post Graduate Training Centre were keen to develop the Leadership skills of their PhD students, in order to support their employability and in so doing support the future economy of Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom.
Their existing Leadership Programme was not attracting sufficient numbers of students and they were concerned that it was having limited impact in relation to the day to day leadership behaviour of participants.
Through this new programme Queens wants to become the Russell Group University whose post-graduates are renowned for their leadership capability as well as their academic achievement.
Resilience Tools solution
Our Resilience Consultant provided facilitation and professional advice to envision the future of the programme. We designed and delivered an enhanced programme linked with the Level 5 in Leadership and Management as awarded by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).
The programme has received excellent feedback but more importantly we have testimonials from students which directly evidence the application of their learning and the benefits to both their PhD’s and their careers.
What we’ve seen: Resilience Tools can be a powerful tool when used at the beginning of, as well as during, your career.
This has already had a hugely positive impact on my PhD, because I am more confident and working more productively in every aspect of my studies. The ‘Leading your PhD’ training has already proved to be very beneficial to my career.
