We are committed to making you an employable graduate so we build this into our courses. All of our taught modules have clear ‘skills outcomes’ specifically linked to the skills employers want from their graduates. In addition, you'll be encouraged to take part in our bespoke employability initiative that brings together a programme of activity designed to give you hands-on experience and further enhance key skills in readiness for the world of work.
CEELS can help you develop your employability skills whilst you are a USW student.
You'll have opportunities to take on project management and development roles working with sports organisations, such as National Governing Bodies for Sport (including Hockey Wales, Welsh Netball and Golf Development Wales), local authority sports development departments, private organisations, Street Games, social enterprises and leisure providers.
These opportunities provide first hand experiences of planning, delivering and managing a sport and physical activity project in the community.
On 07 April 2017, over 50 employers from the sports industry attended our annual Employability Conference to advertise their sport placement and intern opportunities to our students.
1st and 2nd year students attended workshops led by industry professionals, which focussed on career development. Students also attended our employer fair to meet and chat with potential employers and network.
Details about our Employability Conference 2018 will be made available on this website, once a date has been confirmed.
