As with the level 2 version of this module, students who choose this module can expect to complete a reflective portfolio detailing the gains from embarking on the international field trip.

Graduate Employability Scheme – Sponsored by Jaguar Land Rover – A300CES

Although this module is not ‘brand’ new this year, it’s still relatively young in its existence but is also worth mentioning due its significance in sparking the creation of the following two and in regards to its past-year popularity. A tremendously desirable opportunity of employment engagement at one of the world’s most prestigious companies, this module allows for students to identify what skills employers look for in candidates and reflect on their own employability competencies in workshops and mock interviews. 83% of the students on last year’s module secured graduate level jobs with renowned companies including JLR, Rolls Royce, IBM, Severn Trent Water, Bentley and JCB but to name a few.

Graduate Employability Scheme – Sponsored by Enterprise Rent-a-Car – A302CES

Much like the JLR module described above, this new module offers the chance of direct involvement with, in this case, Enterprise rent-a-Car; exploring technical and non-technical opportunities and further understanding of the recruitment and selection methods adopted by many graduate recruiters. Mock assessments and mock interviews will again provide the basis for a reflective report for the coursework as well as the recruitment related activities.
