The University of Glamorgan has a great reputation with employers; we are well known for providing graduates with the right skills for today’s fast-changing world of employment.
In close consultation with key employers in the region, the University is developing an innovative Employability Development Programme, Glam Edge, that formally provides students with the opportunity to develop a distinctive ‘edge’ to enable them to stand out from the crowd, not just for that first job but through their career.
Students document, appreciate and then utilise the skills acquired across a broad range of activities. The aim is to develop an integrative process by work in conjunction with employers to develop our students to address the needs of the modern workplace. Activities include work-based projects, work placements, work shadowing, enterprise initiatives, voluntary work, part-time jobs. In short, the University aims to make our graduates not just ready for the workplace, but also ready for a successful future career.
If you’re looking to recruit top quality graduates, or want to offer work placements to our current students, Glam Edge is the best way to link with the University.You can also liaise with us about course content so you can be sure that our graduates come to you with exactly the right skills.
