Inkpath is the lifelong skills and career development platform. Northern Bridge Consortium has made this service available to its studentship award-holders, giving you free access to this tool, for life. Your Inkpath portfolio will stay with you throughout your career at this and other institutions.

Accessed via a mobile app or on the web, with Inkpath you can record all your training and personal development activities in one place. This can include formal and informal, past and future, internal and external training and other activity. Seminars, conferences, publications, meetings and projects can all contribute to your portfolio.

With Inkpath, you will discover the best training available offered by the consortium and tailored specifically to your needs. Wherever the event occurs and whoever is the provider, all events are brought together in one place where you can search and filter to find opportunities for you. Inkpath shows you key information about each event and directs you directly to the relevant booking page. You can reflect on your development and understand your next steps.

You retain access to the platform and all this information, for life. Your information builds into a rich portfolio of activity, mapped against the Vitae Researcher Development Framework. This record of your activity, evidence and notes can all be exported when the time comes to write CVs, report on your activity or apply for your next position or funding.
