The Training and Personal Development Plan has been designed for research students at the University of Leeds. The Plan has two functions:
1) During the course of your research degree you will collect a variety of documents, records and data that relate to you and your experience as a researcher. This document acts as a framework to allow you to store and file this information in a meaningful way.
