York Strengths Development Day

 Relationship builder, communicator, achiever, learner

Our award-winning York Strengths Development Day enables you to discover your strengths - the things you are good at and you love to do - through enjoyable group actvities, and with support and feedback from a trained observer.

York Strengths Development Days are normally offered to undergraduate first year students, and postgraduate taught students.

A Development Day takes about 3 1/2 hours, and is supported by the content in York Strengths Online.

  • Before attending, you'll need to access York Strengths Online for an introduction to the programme, and an initial consideration of your strengths
  • You'll also need to complete the submission at the end of York Strengths Online to be recorded as having completed York Strengths

We have yet to confirm whether we will be able to offer any face to face Development Days in Summer term 2021. Watch out for further information by email, social media and on this web page. In the meantime, please access York Strengths Online to get started!
