Employability and Progression Assistants

The Employability and Progression Assistants (EPAs) are a team of dedicated graduates, supporting the progression of underrepresented students.

As University of Leeds graduates from widening participation backgrounds, the EPAs know firsthand how overwhelming career planning can feel. That’s why they work tirelessly to support students in similar circumstances with all-things careers related. 

To prepare students to compete in a global job market, EPAs offer support appointments, hold a variety of workshops and events across the academic year, and work closely with other teams to promote exclusive opportunities to targeted cohorts of students.  

If you’re a student from an underrepresented background and feel you might benefit from speaking to the EPAs for careers-related support, please reach out to us through this form. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
