The BG Employability Award essentially rewards you for the efforts that you put into building your own skills portfolio. With the overall aim of helping you to be fully competent for the work environment when you graduate, it will help you gain work experience and allow you to explore your options when you come to plan for your future career.
You will earn points by participating in additional work experience, volunteering, part-time and vacation work, attending relevant employability award workshops and lectures, and taking part in on-campus activities. You will also be encouraged to reflect on your experience to date – a vital skill for completing your CV or job application.
Stand out from the crowd
Taking part in the BG Employability Award will help build your skills and experience so that you stand out from the crowd as someone who is ready to work. You will demonstrate that you not only have the skills required in your area of study but that you also have transferable skills suitable to the workplace.
