The Vitae-La Caixa Training Programme provides personal and professional development training for researchers based in Spain.

Since 2016 Vitae has delivered a series of 3-day residential workshops and almost 30 webinars for over 170 PhD fellows, PhD supervisors, and Postdoc fellows.

“Well explained and easy to follow. The webinar was very dynamic, answering our doubts and engaging participation” quote from a Fellow
Workshop themes have included a range of personal and professional development topics such as personal effectiveness, self-confidence and self-reflection, academic writing, career planning, project management, working with & managing others, and public engagement.

Webinar topics included grant writing, networking, preparing for internships, and building an online profile. In the coming academic year we will be delivering residential training and webinars to two Junior Leader cohorts in Catalonia, as well as introducing individual online careers coaching.
