Workshops for study and student associations

A good way to gain (management) experience is to become a board member of a study or student association.

These associations can turn to Student Career Services for workshops. The workshops are offered for groups up to 15 participants. All workshops (morning or afternoon, 3 hours)* are taught by certified career coaches, trainers or communication experts.

A number of aspects are very important to us in our workshops: interaction, personal development, taking responsibility, learning by doing/experiencing and a safe environment.

* This does not include the CV checks. These can be interactive 1.5-hour workshops or individual CV checks.

For whom?

The workshops are meant for starting student board members, committee members and other members of study and student associations. Workshops can also be organized during career events. Workshops can be held both in English and in Dutch upon mutual agreement.
