‘Last night TJ and Chris attended the Student Development Award Ceremony. The Student Development Awards recognise students’ achievements gained through extra-curricular activities undertaken alongside academic studies. These valuable learning opportunities include representation, sporting, cultural and volunteering activities offered by BU and SUBU, and also by a wide range of community, business and charitable organisations external to the university.
By participating in the Award scheme, students gain a better understanding of how their activities can enhance their employability skills and how to articulate these more effectively to employers. By creating an e-portfolio to record and reflect on their activities, they develop the ability to evaluate and plan for their on-going lifelong learning needs. They can also share their achievements through electronic networking channels such as LinkedIn.
If you want to find out more and perhaps take up the challenge, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org’
Thanks to Chris for this update
