The poster will discuss the programme in its furthering amongst PhD students of their Public Engagement and Outreach knowledge and experience, and how it has enabled confidence in sharing research beyond the spheres of academia. It will summarise the programme activities which have developed their Meta-skills such as confidence, leadership, presentation skills, workshop delivery and communication to a variety of stakeholders; as well as building project management experience in seeing the development of materials from start to finish with practical outputs and outcomes. The poster will also explore the strengthening of relationships between Heriot-Watt and local schools/libraries, and future plans for enhancing this as a result of the funded programme.
