The Students' Union offers a broad range of skills & training workshops from first aid to leadership! We'll also help you reflect on your experiences through the Hallam Award for your C.V.

There’s a chance that skills development is not top of your priority list at the moment, and that is totally ok and understandable. But we wanted to let you know that the team are busy working away remotely, to chance our service offer so that if/when you do want to branch out, try something new or use this time for your personal development, we have got you covered.

This is what is currently on offer:

  • For those who don’t know, we offer personal development sessions to support students. These are an opportunity to talk about any area you would like to develop e.g. building confidence, improve your team working skills, goal setting etc. These will now be delivered via zoom video call. Follow the link to 1-2-1 personal development coaching sessions that are bookable via our Union web page.

What else are we working on:

  • Our student peer trainers are working super hard to put together worksheets and handouts to share to support student development in areas such as time management, stress management, tips on what to do next (further study, starting your career, graduate schemes).

What else can we be doing? If we can offer any further support for now, or you have any ideas on what your skills and training development team could do for you, please email the team on skillstraining@shu.ac.uk
