Our Research Methods courses provide training for researchers in key skills. See our Events page for all of our training, and the list of Spring 2019 Research Methods sessions below.

If you have problems booking onto Skills Forge, please email the paper booking form in the Research Methods Courses Spring 2019 booklet (152KB) to BRCTraining@gstt.nhs.uk.

NB We require a minimum of 72 hours’ notice if you are unable to attend.

In order to encourage participants unable to attend to cancel and so enable their place to be filled, we are introducing a Two Strike rule whereby should you book and fail to attend on two occasions without notification, and any future bookings will be cancelled. We understand that unforeseen clinical work pressures can prevent attendance at short notice, so two ‘did not attend’ (DNAs) are permissible before this rule kicks in.

For further information please contact BRCTraining@gstt.nhs.uk.
