Training for employability Training for employability

UEA is one of over 60 universities taking part in the Green Impact programme, with the support of the National Union of Students (NUS).

Green Impact gives a structured approach to increasing environmental and social activity across UEA. Teams sign up to an online Workbook, where they earn points towards an end-of-year award for green activities.
