Brighton based help with finding work and training or retraining

UoB Careers Centre

We worked with the Careers Service to help them develop an online Portfolio tool to enable students to record and keep track of all the skills they develop during their degree, whether on their academic course or as a result of activities like part-time employment and volunteering.

Students are now able to keep a complete record of all their achievements, with evidence, so that when they finish studying they can easily produce tailored CVs and job applications that respond directly to job and person specs.  They can also use these records to practise and prepare for interviews.

Some of their materials can be shared with tutors and careers advisers in order to seek help, feedback and advice.

This complements the University’s excellent online career guidance for students and alumni.

Impact

Studentfolio is now provided as a mainstream university service supported by the Careers Service.
