We provide support to assist all students with their careers in development.
We provide a first year key skills module for our undergraduate students, who also receive development practice seminars and practical workshops throughout their three years of study. Our undergraduate students find that the Development Work Experience (DWE) module particularly helps in building their early careers.
To our postgraduate students we offer workshops and seminars to support employability and development skills practice, as well as the Development Work Placement (DWP) module. There are also in-depth CV-writing workshops specifically designed to reveal how best to cast different types of CV.
"I wanted to write to tell you how useful I found the financial planning workshops. You managed to make financial planning come alive for us and highlighted its application in our future careers in development. It was a very useful workshop that I won't forgot and I commend DEV for organising it for us all. The Development in Practice module is going very well. Learning practical skills which we can apply means we will hit the ground running after university."
William Barsley, former DEV student.
