We are pleased to announce that ACSE is now an accredited provider of PGR training for the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) - making us eligible for future STFC Doctoral Awards.
Our application for accreditation was assessed by the Education, Training and Careers Committee (ETCC) on a simple pass/fail basis against a set of criteria drawn from STFC’s current expectations of student training. The ETCC assess five different categories: training environment; quality of training; quality of supervision; careers advice and recruitment.
Our commitment to mentoring and career provision was singled out for particular praise. These particular elements emerged from the Athena SWAN process and alongside a number of other factors enabled us to meet STFC requirements successfully.
