GGRS Supervisor Workshops
Our HDR supervisor workshop program consists of two compulsory accreditation modules plus a variety of elective workshops. This program will equip you with the knowledge and skills to lead best practice HDR supervision within your industry.
Supervisor Accreditation Process
What you need to know about HDR supervisor accreditation
The Supervisor Accreditation Policy details the requirements for accreditation.
Supervisor accreditation has three categories:
- Accredited (may be appointed as a principal supervisor)
- Transitional (may be appointed as an associate supervisor or co-principal supervisor, in conjunction with an experienced principal supervisor)
You may apply to have your HDR Supervisor status updated from 'transitional' to 'accredited' by writing to the Dean (Research) in your Group.
Accreditation is dependent on the following conditions being fulfilled:
- Completion of the compulsory GGRS 'Supervision 101' and 'Research Integrity for Supervisors' workshops, plus one GGRS elective workshop for HDR Supervisors.
- Supervision of one PhD or Doctoral candidate to completion of their degree as an associate or co-supervisor.
Supervisors transferring to Griffith from other universities are required to attend the Supervision 101 and Research Integrity for Supervisors workshops, even if they have previously supervised an HDR Candidate to completion. Our HDR Supervisor Accreditation Pathways document explains this in more detail.
|I don't know what my accreditation status is. How do I find out?|
These instructions will show you how to check your accreditation status on our centralised register. If you do not appear on the register or if the information is inaccurate please email email@example.com and we will investigate further.
|Who approves supervisor accreditation?|
On the recommendation of your Head of Element, your Dean (Research) will approve your supervisor accreditation status once you have fulfilled the relevant accreditation requirements.
|How do I apply for supervisor accreditation?|
You should email your Dean (Research) with evidence that you have fulfilled the accreditation requirements. A screenshot of your Griffith training record is usually sufficient evidence of training attendance.
|How do I find my training record?|
Within the Griffith portal navigate to: My Staff Page > Training > My Training Summary
|I have attended other training workshops, can I count these as my elective?|
No. Your elective must be chosen from the suite of GGRS supervisor accreditation workshops.
|I am sure I attended these workshops but it isn’t reflected in my training record. What do I do?|
If you attended recently you should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a review of the official workshop sign in forms. If you attended more than a year or two ago then it is probably time for a refresher; keep an eye on your emails for upcoming training invitations.
