Values in Health

This short program is designed to help you reflect on and explain the values and character strengths that play an important part in your career, with feedback from the mentor along the way. 

People who enter health professions tend to do so mainly out of a desire to help people. While their education and skills provide their capability to do the job, their values provide the motivation to do it well and the resilience needed to stick with it. Understanding your values, character strengths, and motivation can also play a large role in health recruitment. They can set you apart much more than your education and clinical experience, which will be similar to all the other applicants'.

There are four steps: one survey and three short writing tasks. Each step should take less than an hour to complete. Your mentor will provide feedback along the way, based on their own experience in the health professions. By the end of the program, you should have an in-depth understanding of your values and character strengths and how they might help you achieve your career goals 

Employability in Arts and Humanities

This short program is designed to help you reflect on and explain the personal qualities that will help you meet your career goals, with feedback from the mentor along the way. 

One of the hardest questions which come up for Arts and Humanities students is “what can I do with my degree?” Arts and Humanities degrees do not necessarily lead toward a specific job, but rather they open up a vast array of opportunities. This is in large part due to the nature of the skills that employers are screaming out for. But employability is not only about skills, it's equally about your mindset, attitudes, and your ability to cope with uncertainty and change.

There are four steps: one survey and three short writing tasks. Each step should take less than an hour to complete. Your mentor will provide feedback along the way, based on their own experience. By the end of the program, you should have an in-depth understanding of your employability and what you might do to make progress toward your career goals. 

Values in Education

This short program is designed to help you reflect on and explain the values and character strengths that play an important part in your education career, with feedback from the mentor along the way. 

People who enter education tend to do so mainly out of a desire to help people. While their education and skills provide their capability to do the job, their values provide the motivation to do it well and the resilience needed to stick with it. Understanding your values, character strengths, and motivation can also play a large role in education recruitment. They can set you apart much more than your education and practical experience, which will be similar to all the other applicants'.

There are four steps: one survey and three short writing tasks. Each step should take less than an hour to complete. Your mentor will provide feedback along the way, based on their own experience in education. By the end of the program, you should have an in-depth understanding of your values and character strengths and how they might help you achieve your career goals.
