Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

The Law School adopts the philosophy of SOAR, the University of
Bedfordshires student-centred process of integrating personal,
academic and career development. SOAR is an acronym representing the
dynamic relationships between Self, Opportunity, Aspirations, and
Results.

The development of self-awareness is an integral part of the personal
tutoring system in which you will reflect on your academic performance
with your personal tutor at various points throughout your studies. At
level one you will undertake the unit Legal Education and Practice in
which you will be made aware of opportunities to develop yourself and
your career. In this unit, you will learn about the Universitys Centre
for Personal and Career Development, and be made aware of a number of
support services they can offer, such as information on careers and
postgraduate studies, one-to-one careers advisory sessions, on-line
tools to develop your career management skills, help with CVs,
testing, and interviews, opportunities for volunteering and work
placements, and job searches. Your personal tutor will also discuss
potential career opportunities with you during regular personal
tutorials, and advise you on how to best prepare yourself for your
chosen career within the structure of the degree as part of Personal
Development Planning. Subject specific information on training, work
placements, and job opportunities will be regularly placed on BREO. In
addition, you will be invited to a careers fair in your second and
third years.

The Law School has close links with the Citizens Advice Bureau and
local law firms who offer work experience to our students.

The course also offers you ample opportunities to generate, clarify,
test, decide and implement aspirations, both for the present and the
future. Throughout the degree you will have to plan and manage your
academic studies. This will help you to identify goals, to put them
into practice, and to assess the outcomes.

Finally, you will be encouraged to demonstrate skills and results.
The course teaches you vital skills in oral and written communication.
You will be encouraged to document your work through a progress report
portfolio.
