'SHAPED' is an acronym for 'Supporting Hatfielders’ Academic Progress, Employability and Development'. SHAPED is a Hatfield personal development programme that aims to help each student to develop in academic, personal, and interpersonal skills and so prepare them for life after university. To this end, SHAPED organises a variety of talks, events, and workshops covering academic and student life, and future employability. Past events have included speed reading and networking workshops, volunteering and 'CVs and Internships' panels, and student mentoring drop-in hours.
SHAPED events are an important way to get involved in College life and to participate in the University's Durham Inspired Award. It reflects Durham University's overall Education Strategy by offering a distinctive and integrated approach to the intellectual and personal development of all members of College.
