When you attend your Pathway Assessment, the Adviser will make recommendations and guide your award pathway to ensure you are undertaking activities that compliment your studies and future career options.
All of the activities undertaken on the award are to be evidenced using the Evidence Booklet provided - you will be given this booklet at the Induction.
Once you have registered and completed your Pathway Assessment, activities can be completed in any order. You can even backdate activities you have completed since the start of your degree. You will need all of your activities completed and signed off in your evidence booklet to present at the Careers and Employability Centre in order to book your Pathway Reflection and Interview Experience.
