About the Research Skills Toolkit
Epigeum is currently reworking its research skills resources to create the Research Skills Toolkit: a suite of flexible, streamlined, and comprehensive training programmes that will build the knowledge and skills that are essential to becoming a first-class researcher.
Each of the programmes, and their component parts, can be undertaken independently or combined with other elements of the Toolkit – supporting the unique needs of your institution and learners, in their journey from starting their Master’s degree to completing their PhD.
Developed from the Research Skills Master Programme, the Research Skills Toolkit update integrates a fresh and modern learning design, and enhanced user experience, maintaining and refreshing its coverage of key research skills and contemporary research challenges over the next two years.
Facilitating a blended learning approach, and supported by step-by-step guidance on suggested tutor-led and peer-to-peer activities which are mapped to the learning outcomes of the courses, the toolkit delivers a flexible approach to research skills training.
As part of the refresh of Epigeum’s research skills resources Research Skills Toolkit is changing. Developed from the Research Skills Master Programme, the Research Skills Toolkit integrates a fresh and modern learning design and an enhanced user experience, retaining and enhancing its coverage of key research skills and contemporary research challenges over the coming months and years.

Lead Advisors of the Research Skills Toolkit:
The increasing range of doctoral candidates, research projects and research methods requires innovative approaches for training and support. The development of the new Toolkit recognises these new requirements and will provide a valued resource for all doctoral candidates in the 21st Century.
