NERC’s best practice principles set out the minimum considerations for training grant holders and cover the four stages of recruitment and training:
- finding talent: to make the PhD pathway accessible and attract potential applicants who may not currently view a PhD as accessible to them
- shortlisting and interviews: to ensure the applicant shortlisting and interview process is fair and transparent
- nurturing talent: to make the student training experience as inclusive as possible
- monitoring and reporting: to be used effectively to foster a diverse and inclusive environment.
