What are the advantages of delivering an event?

Delivering an event as part of the Development Weeks programme is an opportunity for:

  • Academic staff to engage with and inspire students by introducing them to a subject or area they may not have experienced before, engage with their own subject in a new way, or to provide them with the chance to learn skills that will enhance their employability. 
  • Students to build self-confidence, skills and experience as well as to inspire peers and engage them in activities which may lead to Degree Plus recognition.
  • Clubs and Societies to promote their areas of interest to a wider audience, grow their membership and showcase expertise and talent.
  • Employers to engage directly with students to promote opportunities available from their company and achieve closer fit between needs of their business and potential future employees.
  • Charities to promote their social aims and objectives to a wider audience and match students to opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.
