The Skills Academy is a series of seminars and workshops facilitated by the Careers and Employability team and designed by industry professionals, employers and specialist speakers investing their time to help you stand out from the crowd. Skills Academy Workshops focus on helping you develop the necessary practical skills and qualities to get ahead in the world of work, whilst you study and after you graduate.
