BrookesEDGE is a co-curricular scheme run by the University and Brookes Union to help students make the most of their time at University and to become ready for the job market.
When you want to get the EDGE, you will use the STAR technique (Situation, Task, Action, Result) to show how you have developed each of the following skills or attributes: Creativity; Planning and Managing; Problem Solving; Communication; Working with Others; Ethical Behaviour.
You will complete six STAR entries of at least 500 words each to show how you have progressed against these attributes. You can choose to focus on at least four attributes from six, so you can show how you have built your skills in specific areas. This will help you to create your EDGE Award to fit the careers you are intending to follow.
