ARIES training targets the needs of PGRs, end users and academia. Training is themed around the VITAE Research Development Framework (RDF), and structured to realise our vision of the 21st century scientist (see Figure below). Training comprises five weeks of whole-cohort training, continuing Training Needs Analysis (TNA), and the development of needs-specific advanced courses. It builds on the highest possible level of approval for training from NERC.
