You should receive an email with confirmation of cancelled workshops. We are working to provide as many workshops online, either live or a recorded version, where possible. However, this is not possible for all workshops due to the nature of delivery and level of interactivity. Where workshops are able to be provided online (either live or via recorded versions) we will be in contact with those who were booked to provide details.

Global Skills Award

As the last lectures for the programme were cancelled we have sent out recorded lectures to those enrolled onto the programme.  You can view online at your own convenience. We will be routinely verifying with the system who has viewed each lecture and add this to your profile for the GSA award.

All face-to-face workshops for this year have been cancelled. We are looking at delivering some workshops online or providing a recorded version, where possible. We will share these with participants once they are available.

You can also book a review of your CV via email or phone with the Careers and Employability Service. This can count towards your award: careerhelp@kent.ac.uk

You have until Friday 26th June to complete the award. Unfortunately, due to the current situation the award ceremony event will not go ahead. We will be contacting those who have completed the award and arranging for their certificate to be posted to them.
