The Research Leadership Programme (RLP) is a pilot scheme intended to support research active staff at all career stages and career paths. The RLP was developed by a Steering Group chaired by Professor Angie Hart. It is administered by the Research Office and delivered by a combination of external facilitators, successful researchers from the University of Brighton and key staff from the Research Office, Human Resources, Finance and the Professoriate.
The course is designed to be user-led and there is an expectation that participants will assist with the roll-out to future cohorts. Participants must be prepared to commit to, attend and engage in the whole programme which consists of eight days of facilitated and collaborative sessions timetabled across four months.
The RLP offers opportunities to explore relevant issues around research team leadership, apply learning on research leadership relevant to the University of Brighton context, and engage in a process of mentorship and shadowing.
