Welcome to Alpha!

Your life didn’t start when you got to Western. We know that you came to Uni with a range of rich life experiences and these will continue to develop over a lifetime.

Alpha is built around the idea of ‘Capacities’ – understanding and developing the things you need to live a satisfying and fulfilling life. Alpha recommends the content you need to support your personal and professional development while you are at Uni and into the future.

Alpha can help you to see the value in what you have already done, and target areas that you would like to develop in order to live your best life!

Alpha Capacities Profile 

Complete the quiz to unlock your Alpha Capacities Profile, and see how you are tracking against your #bestlifegoals. Your profile is designed to grow with you, and to track your progress over time. There is no right or wrong level of capacity, just a starting point to give you a sense of where you are at now, and where you might like to be in the future. You can access your Capacities Profile when you first log in to Alpha.

How to get involved? 

Alpha is a live prototype and your engagement and interaction will help us to develop some great new features over the next few months. Watch this space.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Alpha is currently being used to support student job seekers who have been adversely affected by COVID-19*
