DSC_0549Hardworking students were celebrated at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) on Thursday at the annual BG Futures Employability Awards.

Designed to encourage students to branch out and widen their skill sets and experiences ahead of joining the work force; the Employability Award is given to those involved in extra-curricular activities while undertaking courses at BGU.

Students can accrue points that decide their award level based on:

  • Volunteering activities
  • Attending business networking events
  • Taking part in Employability workshops
  • Creating a piece of written work reflecting on techniques to improve employability

12 students received the award this year; Emma Stanbridge, a final year English Literature student who passed with distinction, explained why she felt working towards the award was so important:

“I felt it was really important to engage with every opportunity BGU had to offer. Working towards the Employability Award has not only helped me to articulate my employability skills, it has also given me a chance to apply them in professional contexts which is incredibly beneficial as I head to the end of my degree”

Presenting the awards, Dr Rob Boast, Executive Dean Learning, Teaching & Student Engagement, was keen to impress both his own and the University’s understanding of the hard work carried out by the students:

“This award recognises a level of dedication and commitment above and beyond what is expected at degree level. It is an honour to be part of this event celebrating an inspirational group of students”.

For more information on the exciting range of opportunities on offer at BGU, visit our website or contact our Enquiries Team.
