The new Careers and Employability Award launches next month and aims to help students prepare for a successful career pathway. To achieve the Award, students must complete EMPLOY101 online career development modules and a diverse range of experiences which enable them to articulate their employability, attributes and skills to potential employers. The Award will improve the student experience and enhance UWA's reputation for producing high-quality graduates.
If you run activities that could be recognised in the Award please submit them to the UWA Careers Centre via the Supplementary Activities - Provider Application form. Leveraging the Award is a great way to boost student interest and engagement in your activity while providing an extra reward for their participation.
Supplementary activities could include longer-term programs or could be one-off events, such as conferences, workshops or competitions. Examples of supplementary activities that are already included in the list include Career Mentor Link / Women in Engineering, Fairway UWA Ambassador and UniMentor.
Criteria for your program or activity to be recognised by the Award:
- The activity is not-for-credit or extra-curricular
- The activity is not listed on the UWA Guild Volunteering "Current List of Eligible Organisations”
- Students are required to register for the activity
- The activity has a formal developmental learning component
