Penelope Hele

Inspiring Futures Project Support Officer

Faculty of Business

Role

Plymouth Business School's 'Futures Entrepreneurship Centre' is investing student capital into local, regional and national organisations with the purpose of enhancing students’ employability.

In today’s globalised world, more students are going to university than ever before and graduates need more than just their degree to stand out from the crowd to potential employers. Participation in work-based learning demonstrates a student’s determination to break into their chosen career area, gives them the chance to showcase their skills in the work-place and develops their employability skills. 

My role encompasses: 

• Inspiring Futures consultancy projects, which aim to develop students' employability skills, in partnership with businesses, social enterprises and third sector organisations 

• Work-based learning opportunities 

• Bespoke opportunities to enhance student employability, such as business competitions 

If you would like more information about how we can collaborate, I would love to hear from you.
