  • The Leicester Award enables you to be ready for the dynamic nature of the working world. ….In the 21st Century the most significant challenge for graduates will be to manage their relationship with work and learning. This requires skills such as negotiating, action-planning and networking, added to qualities like self awareness and confidence….These are the skills required to be self reliant in career and personal development; skills to manage processes rather than functional skills”

  • About 50 miles south of Leicester a little village called Silverstone.
  • Your challenge is to create a strategy for engaging with the local community to build relationships between the track and village.
  • See website to talk around what Silverstone are doingCorporate social responsibility (CSR). Ideally, CSR policy would function as a built-in, self-regulating mechanism whereby business would monitor and ensure its support to law, ethical standards, and international norms. Consequently, business would embrace responsibility for the impact of its activities on the environment, consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders and all other members of the public sphere. Furthermore, CSR-focused businesses would proactively promote the public interest by encouraging community growth and development, and voluntarily eliminating practices that harm the public sphere, regardless of legality.Essentially, CSR is the deliberate inclusion of public interest into corporate decision-making, and the honoring of a triple bottom line: people, planet, profit.The practice of CSR is much debated and criticized. Proponents argue that there is a strong business case for CSR, in that corporations benefit in multiple ways by operating with a perspective broader and longer than their own immediate, short-term profits. Critics argue that CSR distracts from the fundamental economic role of businesses; others argue that it is nothing more than superficial window-dressing; yet others argue that it is an attempt to pre-empt the role of governments as a watchdog over powerful multinational corporations. Corporate Social Responsibility has been redefined throughout the years. However, it essentially is titled to aid to an organization's mission as well as a guide to what the company stands for and will uphold to its consumers.

    17. 17. AWARD FOR Experience EmployabilityEMPLOYABILITY part of the Leicester Award for Employability Being stuck in the traffic at Greystone is an occupational hazard for anyone who goes to the British GP. There really is not terrestrial way to avoid it - unless you get on a motorbike (and risk being soaked by a passing rainstorm). This year at 0630 on Sunday traffic was tailed back four miles on the A43 and on the back road at Stowe was seized solid three miles out. Later in the morning, we heard, the traffic jam reached legendary proportions, as it does every year. Greystone traffic is the worst in the world and it never gets any better. There are many rumoured short cuts and secret routes but over the years I have tried them all and none ever really work.
