Program uptake

A recruitment plan was designed by the awards and selection working group to meet the targets in the original create project.  A key performance indicator is the number of trainees enrolled in and graduating from the program as indicated in Table 3.1. There was a target of 8 M.Sc., 4 Ph.D. and 4 PDF trainees to complete the program by year 6. These targets were met or exceeded with 13 M.Sc., 8 Ph.D. and 4 PDF completions.
