The Graduate Skills Programme is an employability programme open to all current students. The programme helps you to understand key skills in demand from today’s graduate employers and be able to know how you can develop these skills and then articulate them confidently when applying for a job.
The GSP connects you to employers through a series of graduate skills masterclasses and industry visits, offers tailored online learning pathways, and allows you to record and be recognised for your extra-curricular activities. This programme is managed by the CareersBU team and is endorsed by our industry partners IBM, LUSH, 3-Sided Cube, BCP Council, Mazars and University Hospitals Dorset (UHD)
