6.8 Loughborough Employability Award
The Loughborough Employability Award recognises the development of employability skills through participation in extra-curricular activities such as paid work experience, unpaid work and voluntary activity. It is in addition to the student's academic programme. The scheme is open to first and second year undergraduate students, with approximately 400 new places each year. In addition to recognising achievement, the scheme encourages students to reflect on their skills development in preparation for employment. The award scheme is managed by the Careers Network.
