Welcome to the Researcher's Toolkit. The toolkit seeks to support the researcher at every stage of the research journey. It has been developed to offer you practical advice and suggestions to help you design, conduct and write up a research project. All sections are mapped to the Researcher Development Framework (RDF) an external professional development framework for planning, promoting and supporting the personal, professional and career development of researchers within Higher Education. The RDF articulates the knowledge, behaviours and attributes of successful researchers and encourages them to aspire to excellence through achieving higher levels of development.
The University of Suffolk Researcher Development Programme provides professional and personal development opportunities to support the growing research and enterprise community at University of Suffolk. Delivered collaboratively with the Faculties, other Professional Services and external organisations, the REDP offers a range of workshops, seminars, online modules and resources designed to meet the development needs of postgraduate research students and early career research staff. All of the sessions within the REDP are aligned to the RDF.
