Professional Development

Professional development is at the core of ARMA’s mission. Our members can  benefit from reduced rates to our Training & Development events, ARMA Annual Conference, take part in an ARMA qualification and access bespoke advice through our mentoring matching service. Our services are also a great way to build networks and make connections with other colleagues in the sector.

Our professional development is steered by our Professional Development Framework, developed to help you plan your professional development, assist in mapping your career pathway, and aid managers and institutional staff developers with providing professional development for research managers and administrators.
