Benefits of taking part

Taking part not only allows students to lead on change and improvements to the educational experience at Exeter, but also to demonstrate and develop valuable skills for the workplace including:

  • Project planning and management
  • Contingency planning
  • Teamwork
  • Assertiveness
  • Networking and communication skills
  • Negotiating and influencing
  • Budget management (if your project uses funding)
  • Leadership and people skills (if leading a project)

The project process is designed to help students identify, improve and demonstrate these skills, so that you have a clear insight into how your Change Agents project has advanced your development and employability.
