Army leadership course puts Ulster University students through their paces

Ulster University students are put through their paces at the UOTC Leadership in Practice course.

The University Officers' Training Corps (UOTC) has been putting Ulster University students through their paces during a three-day Leadership in Practice course.

Designed to give Ulster University students the skills and confidence to thrive in the workplace, the initiative includes classroom-based modules covering everything from leadership and communication to time management and planning. Students have also been tackling practical exercises including command tasks and a leadership circus.

Students completing the course will gain recognition through the Ulster University EDGE award. The EDGE Award is a formal acknowledgement of students who enhance their academic study with valuable learning experiences outside the classroom such as volunteering, studying abroad and work placements.
