About the Award

Collaboration is a core value over here at RMP Enterprise - this is why we praise influential collaborations developed between a university and employer/s to offer students additional employability skills and opportunities.

Why They Won

  • The collaborative approach to research, development and student experience is driving safer societies, so much so that the partnership is being extended to other locations across the UK
  • With 15% of the universities placement cohort placed with them, the partnership is an outstanding example of collaboration. This is further justified by students on the programme attaining an incredible 17% higher in their degree score compared to their peers
  • The value of real-life situations and on-job experience, providing opportunities for students across multiple durations is seeing student employability rates soar, with those securing graduate employment within six months of graduation increasing from 63% to 83%

A word from the Sponsor

ProspectSoft

As a collaborator with RMP Enterprise, we understand the direct importance of collectively working together for student success. We believe an important aspect to students building a career path is how their university works with employers, and what initiatives they put in place to benefit them.

A significant proportion of our team at ProspectSoft are previous placements, so we know first-hand how critical it is for employers and universities to build and maintain ongoing relationships. To demonstrate our support and admiration for these institution’s efforts, we’re officially partnering with RMP on this Award. Congratulations to the winners, well deserved!
