What have you enjoyed most about the Cardiff Award?

Learning how to better my chances of employability and most importantly pushing myself to use the skills I had learnt in real-life scenarios. This has given me new-found confidence and the skill-set to succeed in my future career.

Do you have any tips for student’s currently participating in the Award?

My advice would be to always reflect straight after completing an activity, focusing on how you could improve in the future; it is always good to identify weaknesses as well as your strengths!

What would you say to students thinking about signing up to the Cardiff Award?

I would recommend signing up. You should always be looking to enhance your employability and the Cardiff Award provides you with the perfect platform to enhance skills you already have, whilst also gaining new, fundamental skills that will boost your career prospects.
