  • Click on the Green dot ‘Respond
  • Choose ‘Attending’ then submit. You have the option to write a note, for instance if you know you’re going to be late arriving at the workshop.
  • If you need to cancel your place just repeat the process and change the response to ‘Not Attending’



For PGR students there are professional development tools in Gateway too. If you click on My Project you will see a Development section in the right hand menu. You can create a Training plan which you can share with your supervisor. And you can create a Research diary, which you can keep to yourself or share selected entries with your supervisor. In the Development section you can also log your skills training needs, based on Vitae’s RDF. If you need some help using this section please make an appointment with Simone for a 1-1 session.
