MS had obviously not considered the existing provision for PhD student training when he created his ‘new’ programme. He stuttered unconvincing excuses when I reminded him that we were only accredited for the programme that we delivered in 2020.
As I pulled open my desk drawer to extract the large sheet of flipchart paper that listed all the previous sessions inked out in green marker pen, he suggested that I take my ideas to DB and the others at the meeting across campus, starting now.
It took me 30 minutes to find the meeting room, by which time the others had left. I did, however, enjoy playing with a ball of bright orange Blu-Tack en route, and catching a glimpse of SC and TMcE in the café.
