Get Involved: Careers Support Consultation

Earlier this term, I announced that we had called for a policy inquiry into careers support at Royal Holloway.

I outlined that we have done a huge amount of work in collating internal and external research in order to form the stage of education and information. The next stage in the policy inquiry is consultation and co-production, with you!

Careers Support Policy Inquiry

Your invite

On Wednesday 20 November between 5.30pm - 7pm in McCrea 2-01 I will be hosting a deliberative event – and I would love it if you would be able to spare the time to join us. It will be a relaxed environment, there is absolutely no pressure for you to prepare for anything or be in any position, and all I want is to hear your experience and your ideas.

Check out the event

What is a deliberative event?

The results from the Democracy Review made a few things abundantly clear, and one of those was that you all prefer being able to properly engage in developing solutions to topics, rather than simply identifying the problems! The event will all be about discussing what the current state of affairs is, and how we can get to where we want to be in terms of careers support at Royal Holloway.

Rather than a traditional focus group, a deliberative event gives you the opportunity to shape the discussions more, and to bounce off one another in order for us to develop something that is truly representative and in partnership with you.

This event will involve discussions on the priorities of what support you should receive from a university as well as working out what some of the solutions to the current issues could be!

If you have any questions about the policy inquiry overall, or this event in particular then please do get in touch.

I am really excited by this work and can’t wait to engage with you all following on from our research!
