Fran met with Ian Weir from CMU at the end of 2011 and again has been booked to deliver her ‘Professional Skills’ workshops in early 2012.
This will be the third year Fran has delivered these sessions, they are always lively with good student feedback. The aim of the sessions is for the students to think about how they approach the professional workplace – with a focus on the students themselves without their work.

o ‘Maximising your 15 minutes’ – Interviews and portfolios
o ‘Working in the real world’ – demystifying the placement experience
