The introduction of a blended learning approach facilitates the development of transferable, employability, and research related skills within higher education. Research students engage in a variety of learning communities including membership of research teams based on their department or faculty, wider communities based around the Graduate School or Research Skills Training, and also communities beyond their university such as student research networks and discipline based global networks. By matching their skills to the Researcher Development Framework, through the Postgraduate Training Scheme, we can facilitate the development of transferable, employability, and research related skills.
