SHAPED (Supporting Hatfielders' Academic Progress, Employability and Development) is a personal development programme run by students, for students and supported by the college. This programme is unique to Hatfield. It involves a wide range of talks, discussions and networking opportunities covering academia, extra-curricular, student-life and employability. 
If you look closely, you'll find SHAPED Events are advertised everywhere, from our weekly emails, to our Facebook page and even your SHAPED Diary! Join the Facebook Group to get access to opportunities and upcoming talks. Also, check out our website here!
You can also access information on SHAPED through DUO, by clicking on 'Hatfield SHAPED Programme' under 'My College' from your DUO homepage.
