Skillfluence has developed a full range of online programmes designed specifically for PhD students, ECRs, Academics and Professional Staff within universities. 

We use digital tools, trainer know-how and a deep understanding of researchers to provide sessions that are highly applicable, interactive and engaging, whether in-person or online. 

Skillfluence has eLearning platform and we use webinars, virtual classrooms and breakout groups for live interactive masterclasses. Alongside this we have a whole suite of collaborative and engaging programmes, tools and apps including Mentimeter, Kahoot! Slack, Padlet and Canvanizer.

And as always, we can adapt our programmes to meet the needs and interests of specific groups, individuals and cohorts. We’re training designers so if you’re looking for something innovative for your group then please talk to us – we like sharing ideas and developing novel programmes.
