GW4 Technical Staff Webinar Series 2021

January 27, 2021 - July 27, 2021

The GW4 Technical Staff Webinar Series aims to encourage collaboration and sharing of best practice across the GW4 Alliance universities by bringing together technical staff and external speakers to discuss key topics in a webinar format.

The GW4WARD programme supports GW4 technical staff at all career stages across the alliance. This webinar series compliments other development opportunities for technical staff under the GW4WARD umbrella, such as our professional registration scheme and travel bursaries.

The webinars will be offered monthly, from January to July, with each focused on a different theme. By providing a rich programme of webinars, the aim is to both support professional development in a variety of relevant skill areas, and to provide a valuable networking opportunity for colleagues from across the GW4 Alliance.

The webinars are aimed at all those employed as technical staff at the GW4 universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff or Exeter.

The launch event will take place on Wednesday 27th January, and details of each of the webinars in this series can be found below. If you have any questions, please contact the Talent and Skills team at talentandskills@gw4.ac.uk.
