World of Work and Skills Support Unit

The World of Work and Skills Support Unit is here to support and assist students and staff with Graduate Skills, Work Related Learning and Work Based Learning.

We are the Faculty resource to support the implementation of the World of Work Programme and Work Based Learning practices, which also means supporting you.

We have put together a collection of resources we hope you find useful for each area.

Graduate Skills:

PDP and World of Work Logs Staff Resource – Information about World of Work logs, which explains what they are and how they can be used to support PDP practices and encourage students to engage with us.
