Workshops for Bronze USSU Skills Awards

There are six bronze awards up for grabs to celebrate your skills. Achieve them by making an SU volunteering profile and attending two relevant workshops. Impress your tutors, future employers, and yourself. 

For example, as a registered USSU volunteer, attending 'Presentation Skills' by the Library and 'Personal Branding' by Careers will get you the USSU Bronze Communicator Award.
