We place a strong emphasis on personal development planning and as part of your career planning, you will be encouraged to maintain an e-portfolio relating to your competencies.
The e-portfolio will demonstrate how you have met the core areas of GBC (providing that you attain a 2:2 or above), as well as completing a CV that is tailored for your career path following graduation.
Speed networking events
We have hosted speed networking events for our Social Sciences students. This is offers a fast and fun way for you to meet some of the most proactive and innovative focussed employers in the region, giving you the opportunity to secure a position with one of the attending employers.
Speed Networking is a face-to-face professional networking model similar to “speed dating”, that enables participants to make new contacts through focused conversations lasting between 4-5 minutes.
We are using Speed Networking to help you forge new connections with local employers who are looking to recruit students into a variety of roles.
Employers who have attended previously include:
- Action for Children
- Birmingham Crime Diversion Scheme
- Coventry YMCA
- Midland Heart
- West Midlands Police.
