Project proposal writing workshops: 3rd December and 21st January 2020

In preparation for staff submitting proposals for funding for summer projects, this workshop is for staff to help build a robust partnership proposal. There will be an introduction at the start of the session but staff are invited to attend at any time on a drop-in basis with either their ideas or draft proposals for feedback. The aim is that participants are better equipped to propose successful projects that adopt a robust and effective student partnership approach.  

Dates:  Tuesday 21st January

Location: SALC1, 5th Floor, Sherfield Building
