Industry Based Learning program

Julian Pakay (School of Molecular Sciences) has drawn our attention to the GlaxoSmithKline Industry Based Learning program, applications for which have just opened. Course coordinators may be interested in sharing this information with their students. The program is aimed at students in their penultimate or final year of their undergraduate degree, and caters for a range of roles relevant to a number of degrees.

From the website: “This twelve-month, full time IBL program is the perfect opportunity for students to launch their career, offering invaluable hands-on work experience in a friendly and supportive environment. Upon completion, IBLs will have built on their university learning and gained a competitive edge for all future career paths.”

Career Ready Advantage

Jason Brown, Manager Careers & Employability, describes the new and improved Career Ready Advantage, the app-based program which supports students in tracking their career readiness, developing their skill set, and building a competitive portfolio.
