Advancing in academia: arts & humanities
Advancing in Academia is a blended learning careers course for post-doctoral staff and PhD students developed by King’s College London, and open to members from the London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP).
The 2021 version of the course will focus on Arts and Humanities. It will include a special focus on equality, diversity and inclusion in Arts and Humanities academic careers.
With the support of specialist researcher careers consultants from the Careers and Employability Service, it aims to help researchers consider whether an academic career is for them or not, how to think about and plan their career strategically and how to manage the job application process successfully. It’s a blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning; online resources, reflective activities, interactive discussion and weekly live webinars with expert guests.
