EEECS Research Academic Apprenticeship Programme
The aim of this programme is to allow researchers who plan to pursue an academic career to acquire valuable mentoring support, teaching experience without this having a negative impact on their research. On completion of the programme, applicants can better decide if an academic career is something they would want to pursue. Since 2014 70% of researchers who have taken part in this scheme have secured academic appointments (both within QUB and in other Universities). Many have attributed their success to the experience and support they have received including teaching experience, mentoring and constructive feedback on their CV.
Our Academic Apprenticeship Programme is made up of the following elements:
Teaching Fellowship to include development in ‘Supporting Teaching and Learning’ and ‘Planning for Teaching and Learning’ and 50 hour of teaching time
Academic Career Mentoring
CV Clinic to provide feedback on your CV as if you were applying for your first academic post

- EEECS Women's Leadership Programme
In partnership with:
The under-representation of women in the science and engineering sector is a reminder of the effort that still needs to be undertaken in order to close the gender divide and enable progress towards parity.
This highly engaging and participative programme has been purposefully designed to upskill female scientists and engineers within EEECS with the knowledge and behaviours necessary to confidently and successfully transition into the workplace.
Over the duration of their programme, participants will spend time unravelling “Who am I?”, as well as considering how their personal values, beliefs and behaviours impact their leadership identity and brand.
As a result of their participation on the programme, each delegate will gain an insight into:
- Understanding their own and others’ personality and behavioural preferences (through the Emergenetics Personality Profiling)
- Leading self and others through change
- Developing self-confidence and personal resilience
- Influencing and engaging others
