Student groups and employability – endless opportunities


  • Clodagh McErlean John Moores Students’ Union



At JMSU we have seen tremendous growth in our Student Group student numbers throughout this last academic year. Many of our student group members and committee members develop a range of skills and there are examples of some excellent practice throughout LJMU. We want to shine a light on a few examples of our student groups and sports members to demonstrate the employability skills that are learned throughout student group membership.

This will be an opportunity for colleagues to:

  • Understand what opportunities currently exist for students to engage with student group activity
  • Promote the opportunities to your student communities
  • Consider opportunities which may exist to improve engagement with academic societies and other student group activity that will compliment learning inside and outside the classroom

Our VP Activities Clodagh will be sharing some of the activity that has taken place through “Challenge Clodagh” this year. We hope to collaborate with a number of colleagues from Student Futures along with academic colleagues to shine a light on the benefits of student group membership and our vast array of student leadership roles.
