Report of CaRST Activities

The Adelaide Graduate Centre, through the CaRST Unit, is working to create a consistent and whole-of-University approach to HDR training by collaborating with cross-University teams including the five Faculties and other central professional services units.

In 2016 we instituted an accreditation process to officially recognise training from across the University as part of the CaRST program. We have established a Training Register where students can easily access information about activities eligible for CaRST credit.

In addition, we also selected an internationally recognised skills development framework that underpins the professional development of our researchers. All CaRST activities are mapped to one of the four domains described in this framework.

The report provided below shows the distribution and availability of CaRST offerings in 2017.
