For students enrolled prior to the May 2021 intake, Personal Development Planning (PDP) was linked to completion of reports within the Vitae RDF Planner account.  Training on using the planner system was offered to all students by the Doctoral School.  A change has now been made to the PDP arrangements, and we are no longer issuing RDF Planner accounts – although PDP will continue to be based on use of the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF).
