What is the Careers Award

The Kent Careers Award is a free online programme that gives you the chance  to  think about your career and what type of opportunities are open to you.
The programme has been developed to allow you to recognise your skills and experience, identify career options and ways to market yourself effectively to employers.  It is split into sections that you can work through at your own pace and time.

The award is open to both undergraduate and post graduate students and is applicable to all subject disciplines
