UBC Certificate of Participation

All student team members who complete Round 1 of the UBC can download a certificate of participation to include in your record of personal employability profile, CV or resume. Team members who progress through Rounds 2 and Rounds 3 are also provided with certificates.

Why make a record of your employability skills?

So you can identify a story that shows an employer what makes you stand out in an interview or assessment centre. Keeping a record of your employability skills is a valuable thing to do because when it comes to applying for internships, placements and graduate schemes, you need to assess your strengths and you need to give examples of situations which helped develop them.

Skills developed

Participating in the UBC gives you a story to talk about because it provides evidence that you have developed these skills: Remember, the UBC is specifically designed to introduce graduates to top employers and to develop employability skills in top graduates such as:
• Analytical skills
• Commercial awareness
• Influencing skills
• Leadership
• Planning and organising
• Time-management
• Team-working
• A results-driven approach
• Financial awareness
• Innovation in problem-solving
• Managing the customer relationship
