We look forward to welcoming you to Achieve 2016. This is a
fun-packed week of activities designed to give you the best
possible start both in your final year of academic study but also
for your career.
The week brings together three strands - you will either be
doing Free Elective 44190, Developing Your Employability, 44152
Events and Outdoor Activity Management or you have opted for the
skills conference element of the week. Either way, you can access a
range of talks, workshops and guest speakers that will give you the
boost you are looking for.
As well as the formal elements to the week, each day there will
be a social programme for you to enjoy. This is a great opportunity
for you to make new friends and important contacts.
You will also be able to enjoy Scarborough and its wonderful
seaside location and try your hand at something new.
Tuesday 13 September
Enjoy a tour of Scarborough and treat yourself to some delicious
fish and chips.
Wednesday 14 September
Try your hand at our Segway challenge. Courtesy of Go
Ape! you can pit your wits against others to find out who is the
fastest around the obstacle course.
Thursday 15 September
We are delighted to be joined by Bianca
Miller (opens in new window) who first came to fame
in the BBC programme 'The Apprentice.' Bianca has developed a very
successful business and she will be sharing her tips for promoting
yourself and developing your personal brand. After delivering a
workshop in the afternoon, Bianca will also give an inspirational
speech after which will be open to members of the business
community as well as conference attendees. This will be followed by
a wine and cheese event and a great opportunity for you to practise
what you have learned.
Friday 16 September
Enjoy a free BBQ and entertainment courtesy of the Event
Saturday 17 September
There are three choices today depending on what you fancy. You
can have the adrenalin rush of a cycle and surf challenge with Ray
Barker; take a coach to Manchester Airport with Katy Graley to get
the inside track on how to run an airport; or if you would like to
relax and have a more leisurely time on campus, you can join in the
activities of a Family Fun Day which is being organised by Health
and Social Care students.
We have a full programme and you can choose to attend everything
or simply dip in and out of the elements that best meet your needs.
We hope you have a great week.
