The Bristol Skills Framework has been in place since 2015. A lot has happened since then! In this workshop we will look at the work we are doing to refresh the Bristol Skills Framework so that it will help our students develop the skills to thrive in a changing, challenging and dynamic world.  We will hear from some of the academics who are trialling the new Skills Framework about how they are using it to engage their students in their discipline and prompt reflection on achievements and future plans. And we will explore the opportunities and challenges of embedding the new Skills Framework in your programmes.
