Skills Portfolio

The Warwick Skills Portfolio Award (WSPA) will help you to develop skills that are valued by employers and that will be useful for you more broadly, in your personal life and whilst studying here at Warwick. The WSPA will give you the opportunity to:


  • Assess your strengths and development needs
  • Decide which skills you would most like to develop
  • Identify activities to help you improve those skills
  • Set yourself action points and put these into practice
  • Reflect on your learning and progress
  • Think about how you can improve further
  • Learn how to talk confidently about the skills you have developed


On completion of the award you will gain a University of Warwick certificate to recognise your achievement and will be invited to take part in a celebration event. If you are an undergraduate student, your achievement will also appear in your HEAR record.
