            Employability

            Being enterprising and getting involved in Student Enterprise is a great way to boost your employability skills, improve your CV and make you more appealing to graduate employers.

            Student Enterprise can help you to bridge the gap between university and work, prepare you for self-employment and help you gain relevant and useful business experience. It is very important for graduates to demonstrate to employers that you have a basic understanding of commerce and day to day business concepts, no matter what your industry and Student Enterprise can help you gain this knowledge.

            Loughborough Employability Award

            The Loughborough Employability Award can provide you with a framework through which you can receive recognition for your extra curricular commitments including work experience, voluntary work, roles of responsibility and many other activities which encourage personal development.

            Almost all of our Student Enterprise extra-curricular activities are listed on the Employability Award so, if you are enrolled on the award, take a look at how you can get involved and start earning your points!
