As one of the leading Students’ Unions in the country, Bucks Students’ Union has employed many Bucks graduates on its management and wider staff team. One of our key strategic priorities for the coming years is ‘Developing Work Ready Graduates’ and to assist us in achieving this we have created The Leadership Academy to recognise the value of developing future leaders early on. The Leadership Academy is a bespoke development programme for talented students to gain specific skills for routes through the Union into leadership roles. It’s a series of training, courses and opportunities to enhance employability and build leadership traits – all free of charge courtesy of The Big Deal.
