    About

    The Parkside Works project aims to enhance the employment prospects of BCU students through a variety of activities that include: the creation and management of a Network of Creative Industries companies and organisations that provide placement opportunities and jobs; cross-faculty collaboration leading to innovation in course design and delivery; lobbying of and collaboration with industrial and (local) governmental agencies; the creation of small and large scale public-facing events that showcase the talents and skills of BCU students to a wider public.

    In 2013/14 we provided bespoke placement opportunities to 56 School of Media students with 29 companies who we have signed up to our Network. In 2014/15 we aim to grow that Network to 100 companies, leading to the creation of a ‘Placement Calendar’ that will provide year-round opportunities, both in terms of placements and paid employment, for students from a number of faculties.
