The World of Work and Skills Support Unit is here to support and assist students and staff with Personal Development (including Graduate Skills) and Work Based Learning (placements).
We are a Faculty resource separate from the World of Work Careers Centre.
We have put together a collection of resources we hope you find useful for each area.
Personal Development support (including Graduate Skills):
Personal Development (Summary) – An overview of our model for Personal Development and how it fits in with the support offered by the World of Work Careers Centre.
Personal Development Framework – A list of the five areas and the break down of what this means.
The Key to Employability – This is one of the research papers we have based our model of Personal Development on. Whilst this is a model for employability, we have taken the approach to focus on Personal Development to highlight that the support can help students both now and in the future, and is not just about getting a graduate job. It also reinforces the Personal Development Support for the Faculty.
Personal Development Support Information Leaflet – Information leaflet used with students to give information about Personal Development Support.
Work Based Learning placements:
DBS information (formerly CRB ) – For the latest DBS information, please always refer to our Fitness to Practise website.
New Placement Learning Code of Practice – From 1st August 2014 the Faculty of Science will be using the new Placement Learning Code of Practice and paperwork for supporting placements. This is available from the EAQS website.
NB: If you feel there is anything else we can do to support you, or any other resources you would like to see here, please feel free to contact us and let the Team know.back to top
