Training and Supervision Plan
In the course of your PhD you make agreements with your supervisors concerning your personal development and the supervision you receive. No later than three months after the start of your appointment, these agreements should be recorded in a Training and Supervision Plan. This plan contains agreements concerning your research, supervision, training, and potential teaching duties as a PhD candidate.
Agreements concerning training and supervision
One year after the start of your appointment, the Training and Supervision Plan is worked out in more detail and revised if and where necessary. It should in any case cover the following aspects:
- Any courses and training programmes you are going to follow in the context of your training as a researcher;
- Agreements concerning the form and frequency of the personal supervision you receive during your appointment as a PhD candidate.
These agreements concerning the content of the Training and Supervision Plan are included in Article 6.8 of the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO Nederlandse Universiteiten).
Note: The Training and Supervision Plan is only obligatory for employed and contract PhD Candidates.
