In my role as Associate Director, I will give an overview of the newly awarded ESRC Doctoral Training partnership (SGSSS DTP) that started officially on the 1st of October 2017. I will cover the new structure, as well as the new MSc core training requirements. I will outline the 5 different PhD funding competitions to be held in 2017/2018, as well the new supervisor/student requirements enabling eligibility to apply. I will also discuss required progression and training needs monitoring that needs to be documented to meet ESRC annual assurance checks.
