This project sets out to co-create the support needed to address the attainment gap in degree classifications, employability and support the development of the SHU graduate attributes. This initiative draws upon BAME role models who have achieved success in their careers/businesses to not only inspire and motivate students but to also help students understand key principles that contribute towards successful academic and career endeavours. The sessions will include the following:

  1. A series of guest speakers that discuss their journey of how they reached their current career stage, detailing some of the important principles/lessons they learnt along the way.
  2. A short interactive workshop will be designed to further understand student needs, encourage reflection and action and to help co-create/shape future seminars.

Following the final seminar, the data will be analysed from each session to identify key themes that can be used to inform the development of sustainable recommendations that will address our attainment gap for BAME students.
