More than 40% of academic graduates find it difficult to transition to the professional job market. Experiencing a positive transition from being a student to entering the job market is a key requisite for a long and happy future work life. It is an important part of building a strong professional self-understanding and gaining the experiences needed, to translate academic skills to professional value. Ref. data from The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science (link).
Every year, Station welcomes more than 500 members from 9 different higher educational institutions into our diverse and visionary student and graduate community. As a member of Station’s Partner Community, you will have the opportunity to help introduce students and graduates to a future work life and ease the transition from being a student to building a career.
More than 40% of students on higher educations identify loneliness as the number one reason for them to discontinue their studies, and more than 20% are experiencing symptoms of stress in their everyday life. Wellbeing and mental health are key factors in building and supporting academic development and learning experiences among students. Ref. data from The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science (link).
Station brings together more than 50.000 annual visitors from across educational, academic, and cultural backgrounds and engages more than 100 annual volunteers within our community. At Station we believe that the outcomes and values of student achievements should be measured on more than just grades. By empowering students through the right social and professional networks, we guide students towards a happy, meaningful, and balanced study life. As a member of our Partner Community, you can help create better opportunities for students with an interest in learning and developing outside school. Together, we will provide students with the opportunities to unfold their potentials, engage with peers and professionals and learn to fail in a supportive environment.
Engaging students through collaboration projects and knowledge sharing can help companies succeed in driving a green transition and win the war for innovation and growth, data from Reg Lab shows - also revealing that SME’s that collaborate around knowledge sharing are experiencing 10-12% growth (link).
At Station, our purpose is to bridge the gap between students and society. In order for us to establish new viable collaborations in the intersection of student engagement and organisations, we need to be able to identify the potentials of next generation and actively include students and graduates in creating the solutions for a better future. We need to listen to our future generations in order to access their potentials.
The Station Partner Community is your opportunity to become part of our visionary community of students and graduates from across educational, academic, and professional backgrounds. Based in the former Frederiksberg police station, we gather partners to tie together innovation and student engagement through collaboration, activities, and programmes.
Engaging with our community is a unique opportunity for your organisation to connect with you future employees.
In collaboration with EY and Accenture
Challenge: There is need to engage different professional perspectives within consultancy (the partner perspective) and for students and graduates to gain experience from within consultancy (the student perspective).
EY and Accenture collaborated on a workshop and mentorship programme that was facilitated for a 2-month duration every second year. The aim of this project was to upskill students volunteering in Station’s activities.
In collaboration with Movia, Donkey Republic, and the Capital Region of Denmark
Challenge: we need to involve future generations in co-creating the solutions for the future of transportation in order to become more sustainable (the partner perspective). This will require more attractive solutions for driving student inclusion (the student perspective).
The companies involved collaborated with Station to facilitate a Hackathon where students and graduates were presented with relevant challenges and collaborated on creating viable solutions.
In collaboration with DM (former Dansk Magisterforening)
