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.
