Our unique three-stage York Strengths Programme helps you make sense of what you could offer to employers. It includes:

Stage one: York Strengths Discovery

An online exercise that allows you to respond naturally to familiar situations and scenarios. This results in a feedback report outlining your top three strengths and giving you tips for further development. Unique and personal to you, it will provide a foundation to build on throughout your time at York.

Stage two: York Strengths Development Day

This event consists of a number of fun and insightful activities that give you the opportunity to understand yourself better, reveal your working preferences, assess your progress and identify areas for development.

You will be given expert advice through one-to-one feedback. You'll create a personal action plan to kick start your career planning and encourage you to make the most of the wide range of opportunities at York.

Stage three: York Award

Starting in your second year, the York Award is an employability certificate awarded by the University. It recognises and rewards your contribution to college life, societies, volunteering, employer events, work placements and internships.
