  • Providing quality assurance for the development of staff and student research proposals prior to School approval
  • Discussing any issues and challenges identified by members.
  • Providing a system of ongoing peer support for individuals throughout the research process
  • Supporting and encouraging the development and extension of research skills
  • Keeping abreast of, and participating in leading best practice
  • Identifying potential areas for research and development
  • Mentoring to build capability of less experienced practitioners
  • Providing a mutual support network for solo practitioners
