Specially tailored Public Engagement (PE) courses, for members of the research community, designed and delivered by experts from The Training Group! How our training supports public engagement

Home

The Training Group is a professional partnership, comprising of science made simple and Graphic Science Ltd. We specialise in the provision of bespoke public engagement (PE) training for the research community, offering a range of professional development options for researchers from academia and industry; both for those just starting out and those who wish to further their experience.

Our courses are offered as group bookings for organisations such as Research Councils, Learned Bodies and Higher Education (HE) Institutions. We tailor each course to suit the needs of our clients.  We do not offer individual placements.

Both partner organisations have lengthy experience as practitioners in the PE community and over 30 years combined experience of providing support to the research community. As such we have a deep understanding of the challenges of academia and the support needs of those wishing to engage the public with their work.

Public Engagement training lies at the core of the research-based training activities of the EU-funded LASSIE initial training network. We asked the Training Group to provide appropriate and fun training for our young scientists during an intense two week programme of activities combining our science, professional skills and public engagement. The result was an outstanding success for all concerned!
