Get SET 2017-18

Get SET is a series of six workshops specifically designed for SALTs, 301 and USE Interns to help you to develop your skills in order to support you in your role. We have specifically picked the skills that not only will help you with your projects but also will be valuable for future employment. All sessions will be between 2pm- 4pm

The sessions are as follows:-

26/10/17 Project Management (Pam Liversidge D06)

So you have got to work on a project but not sure where to start? This session will introduce you to the Project Canvas, a project management tool which will allow you to not only plan a project but also work out who you need to talk to, what resources you need and help you develop timescales.

Hosted by USE (University of Sheffield Enterprise)


09/11/17 Team Working (Pam Liversidge D06)

Sometimes, it is impossible to do everything yourself in a project. This session will help you understand what your own strengths and weaknesses are and how having the right team can turn a project from a flop into a success.

23/11/17 Time Management (Diamond Workroom 3)

In many cases, we have faced difficulties in how to manage our time either in university life or professional life. This workshop will help the individuals on matters such as how to manage their time, allocate projects and work that need to be done according to the time that they have and how effective is the result in the end.

13/2/18 Problem Solving (Diamond Workroom 2)

In many cases, we have faced difficulties in how to solve a real life problem and how the individual can think effectively.
