"These programmes have been designed with flexibility in mind for part-time delivery to accommodate participants who are working full time. Each certificate is worth 10 credits and can be taken separately or as part of the overall Postgraduate Diploma/MSc in Analytical Science with Quality Management programme."
The WINSS survey involved more than 54 in-depth interviews with company representatives across the life sciences sector in the South East (i.e. pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical, medical devices, chemicals, food, human and veterinary healthcare).The primary skills gaps highlighted by the survey included transferable skills such as data handling and project management; chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques; thermal analysis; formulation; surface measurements and particle sizing; and to a lesser extent, biomolecular and biomedical techniques. A number of sector specific skills gaps in the pharma/biotech, medical device and food sectors were identified. Survey participants also cited the need for shorter, more intensive training courses which meet specific industry needs rather than longer term courses.
Dr Kinsella continues, "WIT has already run three very successful postgraduate certificate modules as part of the WINSS initiative - Advanced Materials Characterisation; Advanced Spectroscopic Techniques and Advanced Chromatographic Techniques and we envisage that all three of these modules will be offered again in 2015."
