Getting a degree is brilliant, but employers are clear that you also need to evidence additional real-life skills in order to 'stand out' from other candidates when applying for jobs.
The Emerging Professional Programme offers a mix of flexible, interactive online and face-to-face activities designed to help you develop professional skills and attributes sought by employers, helping you to ‘stand out’ from other applicants.
Upon completion of your Emerging Professional Programme, you will receive a certificate referencing the skills and experience gained – a valuable addition to your CV and LinkedIn profile.
More info to be released in the academic year 2020/21.
