Please find below a table of all upcoming XM² training and other events from January 2021 to March 2021, as far as planning currently allows and subject to change.
PGRs, please highlight any XM²-training related absence times to your supervisors. In regards to annual leave or other absence time planning: all confirmed events have been sent to the PGRs via an Outlook calendar invitation, but please ensure to check the CDT in Metamaterials Outlook calendar and to liaise with your supervisors and the CDT in Metamaterials office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for approval BEFORE you make any bookings, as there might be a few more events coming up that are yet to be confirmed.
Supervisors, please be mindful of the XM² events when setting expectations on research deliverables with the PGRs.

After six months, (e.g. after the Month 6 project is complete), first year PGRs can undertake teaching and demonstrating, provided that they complete LTHE online training first. The course is self-paced so you can take it whenever you like but please note it is mandatory and you will not be able to undertake teaching and demonstrating until you have completed it.
