The aim of the programme in question is to enable students to design a life and career plan based on their own interests and aspirations, thereby providing a tool for their development that will lead to greater personal and professional fulfilment.
This programme will provide students with the assistance of expert professionals for the design of each one’s own plan based on their academic and co-curricular activities; develop their own portfolio with the skills and competencies acquired during their degree course, and learn to offer their talent to firms and organisations by focusing on the creation of value and wellbeing.
The programme consists of a series of group workshops on mainstream competencies and peer mentoring, group coaching sessions, and social action schemes.
This program is also being carried out in Gipuzkoa, led by Gipuzkoa Talent, where it is now in its third edition, taking place in line with the Biscayan program.
