Worcester Award Scheme

The University of Worcester is currently in the process of developing an award scheme which will recognise activities which can contribute towards a student’s employability both within and outside the assessed curriculum,  and enable students to promote themselves to future employers.

 

Students take part in a range of activities drawn from a programme of events drawn from four  main areas of activity:

·        Work experience

·        Personal and Skills development

·        Contribution to the local, national or global society

·        Effective marketing of self

 

Assessment is by a written personal statement and a formal interview demonstrating how the students’ employability has been developed, and how this can be portrayed to future employers.

This scheme is currently at the pilot stage, and will be formally evaluated at the end of June 2010, with the intention of rolling out to all students on a voluntary basis in the academic year 2010/11.

The poster display will outline the framework of the scheme and present informal feedback in relation to the first stage of delivery.
