The Employability & Progression team is here to support students and graduates with all aspects of career planning & decision making, along with helping you to recognise and develop your employability skills.
This can be anything from career planning and understanding options with your degree, writing CVs and applications, help with interviews, and applying for further study (including teacher training), to searching for jobs and getting part-time work, understanding how to make the most of graduate fairs, and plenty more!
Employability & Progression
We offer a broad programme of workshops delivered by members of our team, employers and other external speakers, as well as individual appointments with careers advisers. We also work closely with academic staff and individual degree programmes to provide careers support directly within and alongside your studies.
The NUS and the CBI, (Confederation of British Industries – an organisation which represents the views of businesses across the UK), co-produced a report investigating what employers look for in a graduate and how students can maximise their time at university in order to prepare them for when they graduate. You may find it interesting to read this, to help understand the importance of building your employability skills.
