Your future employers will be looking for you to develop valuable skills and experience alongside your studies. The Personal Best Award has been designed to support you with your development in the 15 skill areas of Personal Best and is a fantastic way of recording and evidencing your experiences.

Be the best version of yourself

To develop your skills, take a look at the Award badges and select activities that fit in with your development needs, interests and available time.

Each badge has a number of essential activities to help you develop your knowledge and understanding in that area.  In addition, we have provided some suggested activities and you can also add and reflect on other activities you get involved in during your time here at Loughborough.

Stand out to future employers

The award will help you evidence your skills to employers. It is easy to get started – just go to the app and select which badge you want to get started on. You may find that you are taking part in some of the badge activities already!
