January 10th 2012 saw CDEPP (Centre for the Development and Enhancement of Professional Practice) but on their yearly conference. This year it focussed on integrating employability and came from the employability task and finish group who have been looking at creating an employability award pilot for 2012-2013. The day had a variety of sessions run by senior staff, faculty members and external companies and was extremely useful. The best session was obviously the SU session which I presented, having been part of the employability task and finish group and having been asked by Terry Wareham to conduct a session. I went through what we do in the Students’ Union which enhances students’ employability, showed some interviews with students who aired their views and made everyone sea sick with my Prezi presentation (lots of rotating and zooming in and out). We got lots of positive feedback and some great big ups from different members of staff so after a massive freak out in the morning when my prezi wouldn’t download and major nerves it all went extremely well and I finally got the chance to relax. There is still work to do with regards to implementing the award but we at the Students’ Union welcome this award as it allows students to reflect and articulate the skills they gain being involved with the Students’ Union and local community organisations.
