SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

Having opportunities to develop new skills and enhance their work experience can significantly enhance a student’s employability or their potential to flourish as a self-employed practitioner or entrepreneur after university.

The Union can play a crucial part in supporting students to develop their knowledge and expertise. We will look to provide a variety of opportunities for students to develop skills that will enable them to succeed in their chosen career.

 

How we will achieve this

  • Seek to establish a culture of community volunteering by working in partnership with the national Student Hubs programme to develop a range of volunteering opportunities and student-led projects in the community
  • Develop a clear set of clearly defined skills, awards and competencies to be achieved through our training for committees, elected representatives and volunteers
  • Work with the University Careers team and voluntary organisations nationally and locally to develop employment and volunteering opportunities for students
  • Develop a range of opportunities relevant to the ambitions and interests of Bath Spa students

 

Measures of success

  • Establish a Student Hub at Bath Spa
  • Increase the numbers of students engaged in community volunteering
