MicroCPD: Sprint Forward

Dan Reynolds talks about 'Sprint Forward' project', that gave students an opportunity to enrich and develop their employability skills.

How do we boost employability skills that students don’t always have the opportunity to develop or work upon during their studies at UoB? 

‘Sprint Forward’ was a pilot project designed to provide students from Arts and Law and other disciplines across campus with opportunities to engage with and solve real-world industry challenges.  The project introduced a ‘design sprint’ in June 2019 – a cross-disciplinary approach to solving such challenges, to provide a range of experiences, skills development and networking opportunities for students that would eventually become an enrichment week option for the New Academic Teaching Year (NATY).
