The current shortage of young, skilled researchers within educational research has consequences across the UK. Evaluating how the TLRP succeeded in making a significant impact upon the professional development of researchers provides valuable insights into the practices and types of support that most effectively build research capacity. While focusing on educational research, the findings and recommendations may also have resonance for other academic areas that are also facing impending shortages in research expertise.
