The Wrexham Glyndŵr Graduate Framework has been designed to effectively help learners to understand the attitudes, attributes and skillsets they can develop at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, and equips students to achieve their career aspirations and professional potential.
It's for everyone
Students, graduates, and staff. Employability is a cross-cutting theme that percolates through key aspects of a person’s life, their career options and choices.
The Glyndŵr Graduate Framework supports individual career development learning, as individuals move towards achieving their career goals. It provides a structure to create lifelong learning, and works to future-proof WGU graduates as they search for ways to build their employability.
It is used throughout a student’s learning journey at WGU and beyond. The Framework is embedded into all academic programmes and is used by professional support services to enhance learning and opportunity support for students and graduates.
The framework consists of 15 elements, including 4 attributes, 5 attitudes and 6 skillsets:
