It takes more than hard scientific skills and academic prowess to advance in your career.
Soft skills matter too, and that's why we've developed a new range of transferable skills courses developed exclusively for IOP members.
The courses allow you to develop your skills at your own pace, in a way that fits around your schedule. You can choose how to tackle each topic and use the exercise to analyse how you work best.
All courses are free of charge but you will need to log in. Please contact the Professional Development team if you have difficulty with this.
