Skills in Focus

Event: Skills in Focus

Monday 1st March - Friday 9th April

On March 1st, Sheffield Hallam University will be launching their Skills in Focus campaign! Each week for five weeks they will focus on these five essential skills:

Week 1 – Confidence
Week 2 – Resilience
Week 3 – Self-Management
Week 4 – Critical thinking
Week 5 – Citizenship

‘Soft’ skills underpin: academic attainment, employability and an improved sense of wellbeing. Hallam University wants to support students in developing these skills and crucially, be able to recognise and articulate how they use them.

Hallam University will be posting daily skills-based content on their social media platforms, including employer facts, personal stories and even some memes! Each week students will be encouraged to reflect on how they have used that skill by writing a few sentences, giving them practice for when writing personal statements, job applications or just supporting their own wellbeing.
