Clinical Professionals Group Launches Graduate Training Academy

The Clinical Professionals Group is known for their innovation and added value services to Life Sciences and is delighted to announce the launch of their unique Life Sciences Graduate Academy.

Reading, United Kingdom, October 18, 2014 --( With staff turnover in some core roles in clinical drug development at 29% attrition and increasing, Clinical Professionals wanted to take a pro-active role to provide a solution to an ever growing issue. The Life Sciences Graduate Academy is designed to identify, fully fund and train the most talented Life Sciences Graduates.

On completion of the industry leading training program, graduates are deployed into “first to industry” job roles (Clinical Trial Associate / Clinical Research Associate positions). To ensure ease of transition into industry, graduate trainees will have access to a mentor and a continued professional development program to support them during the crucial initial 12 months provided by Clinical Professionals, ensuring no additional strain on a CRO or pharmaceutical organisations’ training departments. The training provided is free of charge to both the client and graduates*.

By taking a pro-active approach to identifying, funding and training high calibre science graduates, the Clinical Professionals’ Graduate Academy will help increase the number of new highly trained professionals entering the life science industry for the first time, therefore having a positive impact on retention by offering a new pool of talented, high quality candidates.

The Graduate Training Academy will provide the option for graduates to progress from a CTA onto a CRA course, if appropriate for the individual, and all successful graduates will receive a retention bonus after 12 months of continuous employment to assist with retention and minimise turnover for the client.
