The Advanced Skills Portfolio documents your development in and mastery of a range of subject-specific, transferable and generic skills during the first three years of the IPhD Applied Linguistics/English Language Teaching programme. It is compiled throughout the first three years as part of your preparation for your PhD confirmation, building on a range of different learning activities and experiences undertaken during the doctoral programme.
Through your ongoing preparation of the Advanced Skills Portfolio over the first three years of the IPhD, you will reflect critically on your ongoing research expertise, professional training, personal development, and employability. This will help identify areas of your development to focus on in the latter stages of the doctoral programme, supporting you in the transition to a future career as an academic, a researcher, a teacher, or in other employment sectors. The written portfolio is formally assessed.
