Improvements to the PGR Toolbox

We are pleased to announce a number of improvements to the PGR Toolbox, following a survey on the PGR toolbox last spring and a subsequent meeting with PGR representatives in which we established a priority order for requested improvements. Computing services have now implemented  the following changes:

  • Inclusion of Whole supervisory team to meet Institutional requirements
  • Removal of the very restrictive character limit in the forms
  • Removal of the restriction on adding meetings out of sequence – However, please note the official policy is for you to maintain this record throughout  the year
  • The provision of views of the Portfolio of Activity for a selected date range and to allow more options for listing activities

The incorporation of the PGR Toolbox software into Liverpool Life should also have both improved access and offers an easier route to keep up to date with activities in PGR Development.

We hope the changes will make the software easier to use. If you have further suggestions, or if you are still encountering errors using the Record of Supervisory Meetings or the PGR Portfolio of Activity, please contact PGR development at

New FAQs: Through the new Code of Practice, the University has implemented changes to the requirements for recording Supervisory meetings from 1st Sept. We have been working with the PGR Student Team to provide new FAQs to help address many common queries:

PGR Portfolio of activity: We now have two new guides on using the PGR Toolbox to help you use the Portfolio of Activity to prepare for your future career:
