You wouldn’t go skydiving without a parachute!

So, why wouldn’t you asses your training needs before going on training?

Take charge of your career development and increase your employability, by focusing your training efforts where it’s needed. All you need to do is undertake the ’My Academic Development Needs: Self-Assessment’ (MADNSA), it will allow you to see your strengths an any gaps in your skills which you need to address in order to get where you want to be in your career (you can also use Vitae’s version which is more detailed). 

You can read case studies of real academics to see how using the planner based on this assessment has helped transform their careers.

Take some time for yourself and complete the MADNSA and sign up for some facilitated sessions, through the Staff Development webpages and log into myBU  BRAD community to view the online sessions?

    Firstly, I am so pleased you read the blog! Secondly, did it have to be the one I made the mistake in? But as the parashoot website says, personalise your parashoot and come on one of the BRAD sessions; or could you point me in the direction of colleagues who may be interested? 😉
