At the end of November every year, the North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership organises an induction for new starters. The induction serves as a chance to learn more about the opportunities and expectations of being a NWSSDTP-funded student, to meet the team behind the NWSSDTP, and to network with postgraduate students from across the institutions and disciplines of the DTP.
In 2020, this induction was a part of a wider ‘NWSSDTP Week’. This took the form of a series of sessions and events online, some of which were compulsory for new starters, in lieu of a traditional induction event. The programme for NWSDTP Week 2020, as well resources from the various sessions, can be found here.
