New - Durham Inspired Award Bitesize

You can complete the Bitesize student enrichment programme in no more than three weeks.

Complete an on-line Strengths Profile, benefit from 1-1 personal Development Coaching and reflect upon how your experiences at home and at Durham have helped you develop the life-skills that will benefit your future. You can also gain additional recognition if you are volunteering, fundraising or caring for others this term. The Bitesize Award is available to all students and perfect for those in their final year (undergraduates and postgraduates) or anyone thinking about interviews over the summer. And it really is Bitesize, the programme should not take you any more than 15 hours to complete.

You can enrol and start the Award at any time between now and 6 June but there are only 500 places so make sure you enrol fast!

What will I be doing?

  • complete an on-line Strengths Profile
  • review your Strengths Profile and set targets for now and into the future with your qualified Development Coach
  • Bitesize reflections: pick three Graduate Attributes of your choice and work with your Development Coach to understand how your experiences at home and at Durham have helped you develop these important life skills
  • receive an additional Community Activator Award if you are volunteering, fundraising or caring for others during the term

Upon completion of the Bitesize Award you will receive a certificate and be invited to an on-line celebration evening at the end of June.
