BSU Employability Day

BSU Employability Day

Thursday 15 February 2018, 11am - 4pm

Location: G31, Moulsecoomb

Employability is a huge part of the student experience especially with the SU being a provider of employment and facilitating the development of key employability skills. It is the essence of the academic experience of most students’. The aim of this event is to increase student awareness on transferable employability skills that can be gained through part-time jobs, society membership and extra-curricular activities. Training sessions will be delivered by professionals and external speakers to equip you with information, tools and techniques critical to self-development and personal growth.

This event is part of our BME Attainment Gap Campaign and is aimed at students who identify as BME or fall within groups affected by the attainment gap.
