Skilled placements offer students opportunities to engage with social and environmental challenges as voluntary consultants. Across our network of Hubs and through our Projects, we deliver a range of skilled placement programmes supporting students to take part in social action.
We work in partnership with community organisations, small businesses and university departments to give students the opportunity to learn about a specific social issue, connect with other likeminded students and do something to make change.
