Summer Experience Awards Ceremony
What is it?
These awards are brought to you by the University of Bradford Career and Employability Services to recognise the achievements of all involved with the Summer Experience programme.
This event is a celebration designed to showcase the benefits of work experience for both the students involved and the organisations that have offered the opportunities.
Placement providers and students on placement are invited to nominate each other for a number of categories, to view these please go to our Awards Categories page.
All the award winners were selected based on their commitment to their projects and to developing new skills by an independent judging panel.
Who is involved?
Placement providers, students placed on projects, staff co-ordinating Summer Experience and other members of University of Bradford staff.
This is a perfect opportunity to bring all our stakeholders together to celebrate the value of work experience in making students more ‘job-ready’ when they finish their degree. As well as the presentation of awards, there will be keynote presentations from members of the local business community and the University's senior management team.
