The Lancaster Award is a Lancaster University scheme designed to enhance [one’s] future employment prospects by encouraging [one] to undertake extra-curricular activities and acquire new skills and experiences valued by employers.

Throughout my time as an undergraduate I participated in multiple work and volunteering opportunities, as well as attending a number of careers-related workshops. I then filled out a skills bank, identifying and describing instances in which I had embodied a number of positive characteristics during these activities, before completing a mock video interview and submitting a CV.
