Training and Events

Our year-round programme is a mix of training opportunities organised by the NWCDTP in collaboration with external partners, and events organised by our PhD researchers and academics. 

We ask attendees to be aware of our Attendance Policy and be mindful of the high cost of training and of others, since those who book on to a workshop but fail to attend are denying others a place and the opportunity to learn. Read the full Policy here.
