Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
Hey you, get listening because you'll definitely want to HEAR about this!
You want to get the best job possible after uni, right? Well how would you like some assistance in boosting your employability and a helping hand in preparing for job interviews? You'll need to make sure your CV is the best it can be... Seems like a good idea to get some some real practice in too!
The Higher education Achievement Report (HEAR) is your only comprehensive record of learning and achievements whilst at Swansea University. The HEAR includes loads of valuable information about you that employers want to know! The Employability Awards, Schemes and projects that you complete will all be displayed on your HEAR so the employers can see all that you have achieved.
GradIntel.com is the service that Swansea University is using to publish your HEAR electronically, enabling you to share it with potential employers and other universities. Through the 'Gateway' tab and the 'GradIntel' tab above, you can activate your account and find out more information on what can be included on your HEAR.
There is no set time limit for you to access your HEAR account. It will stay and grow with you throughout your studies. To make the best use of the service however, you should aim to complete it as thoroughly as possible and doing this can take several sittings, so get to it!
Swansea University is one of the first institutions in the UK to successfully implement the HEAR and ensure that you can benefit from it. The HEAR can enhance your employability or further your education opportunities because it provides University-verified information about you.
At Swansea University, your assigned Personal Tutor will provide you with academic guidance and support for personal development. It's important you have regular meetings with your tutor and your HEAR can provide great discussion points at these meetings. Discussing your HEAR will help you to identify and articulate the skills you are gaining and reflect on how developing these will allow you to achieve your future goals.
