If you are looking for an opportunity to make the most of your time at university and make your graduate job applications stand out from the rest, Career Ahead is the ideal programme for you.
The Award has been developed by our team of Professional Careers Advisers and is based on what employers look for in their ideal candidate – it will help you to identify any gaps in your skill set, reflect on your experiences and offer you the opportunity to participate in exclusive programmes and mock interviews with employers.
From the Career Ahead Award you will get:
- Official recognition for your extracurricular achievements and the skills you have developed
- The opportunity to develop employability skills
- A chance to prepare for and be interviewed by a real employer through the mock interview task
- On-going support and advice from the Careers and Employability Service
And a much better chance at getting your ideal job!
The Award is flexible; you can do it in your time by creating a portfolio to evidence your skills.
The framework includes 3 main elements (bronze, silver and gold); you will need to complete all 3 elements to gain the full Award. However, you can complete the elements separately and receive a certificate for each stage, for example, if you only want to complete the bronze element you can!
