Building confidence for students and graduates
How to become confident?
Confidence is a skill you can develop, but you need to work at it, just like any other skill. Our confidence programme ‘Lift Off’ can help you achieve greater confidence, as well as the useful resources we’ve compiled below.
Lift Off programme
Our ‘Lift Off’ Programme is available to current students and provides you with a ‘confidence toolkit’ to enable you to build lifelong employability skills. Delivered through six practical and interactive workshops, it’s open to all our undergraduates and postgraduates. Students involved have reported improved success at delivering presentations, interviews, assessment centres and confidence at work. Go to TARGETconnect for more information about upcoming events.
