Yes. The qualifications are compatible with the European Qualifications Framework and endorsed by Ofqual (http://ofqual.gov.uk/how-we-regulate/) which maintains standards and confidence in qualifications. The certificate is awarded in association with the ATHE (http://atheuk.com) specialising in management qualifications.
The focus is on self-guided learning and assessment through work-based portfolios and submission of written work based on personal experience and research. There is a requirement to undertake formal learning through EARMA workshops and contact time with a Professional Mentor. Workshops will be held either in Brussels, Belgium, or at the same location as the EARMA conference as pre or post conference workshop events.
Are the Workshops mandatory?
For the Certificate in Research Management students are expected to attend the EARMA workshops.
I am interested in attending one or two workshops only? Is it possible to sign up for only those?
It is possible to register for one or two workshops only, provided there are places available on the qualification cohort.
Students will be required to identify an individual willing to act in the capacity of Professional Mentor. Your Professional Mentor is ideally a research manager and administrator, preferably in a university. It could be someone from your own institution or a different institution, and should be someone who is not normally your line manager.
Submissions for assessment are taken twice a year in April and October.
Please visit our Registration page where you can find the necessary information.
