Before you start your journey as a GOAT member, you begin by receiving essential training where you meet other members of the team and learn face-to-face research skills to be able to go out in pairs and collect student opinions on a set question.
For each project we ask that you complete 2 hours of data collection over two weeks. Projects last for 4 weeks so there's other optional tasks to get involved with beyond data collection such as getting involved with the analysis, report-writing and presenting to a BU Committee.
We will offer more in-depth training on data analysis, producing research reports and presentation skills to any GOAT member that wants to get more involved with all aspects of the research project.
Becoming a GOAT Champion is a unique and fantastic opportunity to develop skills in:
- Confidence in communication
- Clarity in expressing thoughts or ideas
- Analytical skills
- Report writing
- Presentation skills
Plus you get access to the SUBU Leadership Award with a number of workshops available offering personal and professional development as a leader.
