Professional Development Workshops

Below is a list of some of the workshops you can take part in as part of a Co-Curricular Recognition Programme path.

What are Professional Development Workshops?

A Professional Development Workshop is an opportunity to develop personal competencies, professional behaviours and/or employability skills. Examples include workshops on communication skills, interview techniques or developing your brand.

To be considered as part of your path or award, a Professional Development Workshop must:

  • Be run by a University service department or Faculty. (Facilitators will be asked to verify your attendance).
  • Have a minimum duration of one hour
  • Not be part of your academic programme
  • Be completed the same year as your submission
  • Have learning outcomes which are related to the development of personal competencies, employability skills and/or professional behaviours

Please note networking events which do not offer any other learning outcomes will not be considered as part of a path or award.
