Westminster Employability Award is an employability achievement award that supports your career and personal development by formally recognising the extra-curricular activities you complete during your time at the University.
You can achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, get a digital badge and the chance to win £500 by gaining points for completing activities across four stages. Activities include attending events on and off campus, gaining work experience, completing online tasks, participating in careers and Students’ Union activities and a lot more.
To get you started with the Award, we have organised a lot of events on campus including employer sessions, careers fairs, skills development workshops and others. Find out more about Employability Month and Skills Academy and book your place via Engage.
By taking part, you will gain experience and develop key skills that employers want you to have. Watch our video to find out how the Award has helped students to get job-ready and helped some of them secure internships at big companies such as Goldman Sachs.
You can complete the Award in your own time and have until 1 May of your graduating year to do so. Any previous eligible activities will be backdated to September 2016.
