In summary, all working groups have now been constituted and held initial meetings through video conferencing. Some working groups have got as far as developing terms of reference, reviewing existing practice in the sector and planning work for the forthcoming academic year’.

All working groups will hold their next meeting in person to enable further developments and identify activities to engage the wider UKCGE membership and postgraduate community. This meeting will take place on Monday 22nd September in London and will be reported in September’s edition of The Postgraduate.

Over the coming months, all UKCGE members are invited to construct blog posts, highlight working or pose questions which can be discussed at the September gathering of working groups.
