Our Workshops, Your Skills

In General

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This semester’s programme of SUSU Your Skills workshops is now in full swing. Here’s the latest on how you can get involved.


News from Your Skills

 You’ll soon be able to keep up to date with all the latest from Your Skills via our new Facebook page, specifically dedicated to promoting upcoming workshops and other great opportunities. The page is due to be released over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for the link on our regular social media channels: www.facebook.com/YourSUSU, or @YourSUSU on Twitter. (We’ll probably throw a cheeky Instagram in too, @sususnaps!)


If you’re still unsure about whether the Your Skills workshops are for you – here’s the deal breaker. We spoke to Jade Head (SUSU Trustee and Modern History and Politics student); here’s what she had to say about her experiences of the Your Skills workshops:

“Your Skills is a fun and friendly way to learn new skills and develop current ones. They can give you skills useful for yourself, your course and for future employment. Plus it’s free! [I’ve just come from a] really interesting workshop on Time Management. It was very helpful and gave lots of useful techniques of how to manage time better. It had people from all areas attending, meaning SUSU has marketed it well!”
