Portfolio: Student Coaching

Since Beautiful Canoe started, a key reason for the organisation's existence has been to take our staff, the majority of whom are undergraduates and recent graduates, and to supplement their theoretical knowledge of computing with practical experiences, networking opportunities and employability skills enhancement to prepare them better for the work place or for starting their own businesses.

We have also drawn on guest speakers from industry or with specialist knowledge to ensure that our staff are as up to date and informed as possible.

Many of the techniques taught within Beautiful canoe have been utilised by Aston University staff to enhance the learning experience of the broader student cohort.
