The University of Derby has been awarded Gold by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in the country’s first ever Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), putting it in the top 20% of all providers in the UK.
The University of Derby invites you to join us for the launch of the Work Experience programme; a sector-leading initiative to develop further opportunities so that students in every course benefit from applying their learning through work experience.
We know work experience is an essential criteria for work readiness and contributing to the success of your organisation. It can take many forms, from short, 30 hour experiences in the workplace to setting projects and live briefs for groups of students.
The University of Derby is committed to delivering a real world learning experience; developing the skills and attributes needed by business and our community. We are extending the range of opportunities for businesses, community organisations and the University to work together to develop and secure student and graduate talent.
We understand that engagement and partnerships with organisations is key in achieving this and believe this is a fantastic, flexible opportunity for companies – so come along and find out how you can get involved.
This event will showcase some of the successful partnerships that have already been developed, and be an opportunity to connect with academics and programme teams to discuss how your organisation could benefit from our student and graduate talent.
