Modules in Pictures – a snapshot!
With spring term now complete, we thought we’d share our latest module photographs so that you can see what has been happening across different modules. You never know, this could inspire you to take one of these modules next year, if you still need to complete the Award!
The Award helps to enhance employability by improving a variety of skills used in the workplace, from teamwork, communication and presenting to stakeholders. Whether you are interested in business analysis, commercial awareness, PR or sports… we’ve got it all covered!

If sport is more your passion, there is the Sports Coaching and Leadership – The Nu2 Sports Schemes module. This module develops leadership skills, inclusivity awareness and the ability to organise activities to promote a healthy lifestyle. Above all, you have the chance to be a positive role model in sport:
