As departments and institutions begin to prepare for the 2014 REF, researchers, particularly young ones, will start to worry about whether they are to be included in submissions.

Join us in this session to experience the same innovative experiential researcher development tool currently being offered to all Cambridge University’s 6000 graduate researchers, as well as to researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Hertfordshire and others. Participants will learn about "The 9 Key Skills" of effective individuals, and see how authentic enterprise cases are used in an easy to configure e-Learning environment to generate "Personal Skills Profiles" for researchers, not only assessing their current skill levels, but suggesting tailored future development plans so that the benefits and results endure and build over time following the experience.

This workshop centres around what the authors propose is the next stage for researcher development - a brand for the doctorally qualified. Such a concept needs to have something concrete – such as a core set of values, principles and functions with which the wider public, employers and all stakeholders will readily associate the term ‘researcher’. We are getting there already - the Joint Skills Statement, the Roberts report and now the Researcher Development Framework along with a range of other initiatives (Vitae, EPSRC Enterprise Money, QAA Code of Practice, Concordat, HR Badge of Excellence) create the foundations of professionalism and have helped to create an environment of increased access to personal and professional development amid world class technical research excellence. There will be a short presentation on the implications of proffessionalism and then some wide ranging discussion as to whether proffessional 'branding' is a worthwhile direction. Please come along and help us glimpse the future.
