Bringing Graduate Attributes to life

On 22 November, Oxford Brookes will be hosting an event organised by the ‘Bringing Graduate Attributes to Life‘ project based at University of Aberdeen. See www.abdn.ac.uk/bgatl

Universities around the world are engaging in the Graduate Attribute agenda, with the aim of enhancing the education of 21st Century learners and developing highly employable graduates. Ensuring students understand and take ownership for the development of their own attributes is a challenge that must be faced for this agenda to be successful. In this interactive workshop, speakers will first present how two different universities (University of Aberdeen and Oxford Brookes) have addressed this issue. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss what graduate attributes mean in different disciplines and how they can be evidenced in CVs and interviews. Please come prepared to discuss your own experiences with graduate attributes initiatives.

This free event will be advertised nationally and to Brookes staff.
