  • Build your confidence
  • Bring you closer to industry
  • Make you stand out from the crowd.

STEEP initiatives

Kickstart Days and workshops

STEEP events are designed to build and develop your professional skills to prepare you for your future career.

The workshops help you to gain confidence in skills such as networking, group working, personal resilience and leadership to name but a few; all of which industry professionals tell us they want from our graduates. You will have the opportunity to get closer to industry by meeting and networking with future employers. You will develop the key skills and competencies that employers are looking for, that will help you stand out from the crowd.

Employability Awards

Celebrating the successes of your internship or placement. The Business School would like to celebrate the successes that you have achieved whilst on your internship or placement. We have developed six awards that focus upon areas where our students can often make significant impact on the organisation.

Placement Networking Event

Level 5 students are invited to come along to a networking event where you will have the opportunity to meet with your fellow students who have just returned from their placement year in industry.

Employer Appreciation Awards

Recognising your Placement Employer’s amazing support for you. Has someone at your placement organisation made a significant positive impact on your experience? Would you like to recognise this and show your gratitude? You can do this by nominating them for an ‘Employer Appreciation’ Award. If your nomination is successful your nominee will receive a certificate from the Business School celebrating their input into your placement experience and confirming that they are amazing.
