Next month, INTO City, University of London students will join City University students on a three-day programme designed to improve their employability through developing their leadership skills and boosting their confidence.

Participants in Future Leader Experience with Common Purpose will find out first-hand how business leaders succeeded in their careers; go behind the scenes of organisations across different sectors; and work together to develop solutions to real-life challenges.

The experiential programme will take students out of the classroom and into the city toexplore leadership in practice and give them the chance to participate in challenging discussions with leaders. The aim being to help students to develop insight into how decisions are made and give them the key skills needed to build a vision and create new products. Previous participants have visited, among other organisations: Santander, The Department for Education, KPMG, The Big Lottery Fund and ITV Central.

“This experience really increased my awareness of how important leadership is today. It is a great opportunity to meet industry leaders and like-minded students, so I strongly recommend this amazing opportunity!” said an International Politics student who participated in 2018.

Around 62,000 people have taken the programme so far and, following the course, participants are given access to the 360 portal – an online community of Future Leader Experience alumni that has become an ongoing, broad and fast-growing source of ideas.

Through the 360 portal students can collaborate with other leaders across the world on universal challenges, and progress and implement their innovative solutions.

The Future Leader Experience with Common Purpose programme is provided by Common Purpose, in association with Santander Universities and the City Careers Service. More details, including how to apply, can be found here.

INTO London students recently showcased their presentation skills by hosting a poster presentation exhibition in the centre.

Students from the Accounting and Finance; Business, Management and Law; Hospitality, Events and Tourism; and Social Sciences and Media International Foundation programmes were recently asked to create a poster about their Critical Thinking and Communication Skills research assignment for the event.

During the exhibition the students had to showcase and discuss their topic with the audience, after which their tutors gave them a final mark. The event was a huge success, as it encouraged students to come out of their comfort zones and discuss their work with a diverse audience.

Pam Kaur Gibbons, Critical Thinking and Communication Skills Module Coordinator, said: “Getting the students to carry out investigative research is highly valuable to develop their critical thinking and communication skills.

“Preparing for a poster presentation exhibition gave the students a different type of presenting experience, as the audience became part of the interaction.  It enabled our Foundation students to showcase their research skills to a wider audience. This was a celebration of the students’ and the teacher’s hard work.”

 

Deputy INTO London Centre Director Amy Pu also praised the event, saying, “The event was well-attended and the students were so enthusiastic to showcase their posters and the research and work they’ve put in, which was very impressive! I'm sure that this experience has helped them build their confidence and learn from one another.”
