Undertake the SEA ...
and your Award will be formally recognised in your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
A degree is most important to getting a great job, but employers look for much more than a degree when choosing which graduates to offer jobs to.
Getting experience and developing skills whilst you study and during your holiday periods will give you a competitive edge.
But what exactly do you want to do when you graduate?
What kind of work would suit you?
Some work requires you to have had some experience before you apply.
The SEA helps you to explore who you are and then gain experience and develop skills.
The SEA is one of your Modules in Blackboard being an online workbook that you complete as you work your way through it. Log into Blackboard to access it.
If you complete the SEA it will be recorded on your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Report).
Be sure to have completed by the end of May in your final year of study to ensure that it does go onto your HEAR
There are four modules on the SEA;
These modules are best followed in sequence, but can be taken in any order if you so wish to do.
The SEA is open to any student and if you decide to do it please follow the instructions in Blackboard remembering to save your work as you go along. You can add evidence to most of the sections by clicking on the 'red rosette'.
Once you have completed a module please let us know by email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add this to your HEAR.
Some of you will be completing the SEA on your course, but there is no difference to you doing it voluntarily except that you might be gaining credits on an employability module.
