What is the #EdCareersForSocialGood campaign? 

Many of our students and graduates are interested in career opportunities where they feel they can make a positive impact on society

Students most often look to public and third sector organisations to provide these kind of values-led career paths. 

We want to shine a light on some of the options that students who are motivated by the idea of Careers for Social Good might like to consider. 

The aim is for students to hear from and engage with people from these organisations who can provide insight, inspiration and advice.    

 

How do I get involved?
Which students will engage with this campaign?

The campaign will be promoted to students across the University.  We would expect it to be most popular with undergraduates from year 2 onwards, and would expect most interest from students in our College of Humanities and Social Sciences.  We hope the webinars will attract at least 30 students, and the on-campus event at least 80 students.  Further engagement will come from students searching #EdCareersForSocialGood on MyCareerHub and socials, including our Blog.  The webinars will also be recorded and made available to students afterwards, increasing the potential reach.
