Employability

“Ensure study programmes for your post-16 students give them the skills they need to secure and sustain a job”

As you will be aware, the introduction of study programmes now means that post-16 students have to follow a structured plan tailored to their individual needs, education and employment goals.


With employers recently warning that students straight out of education are not ‘work ready’, it’s now more important than ever to help your students on the road to employment.

We’ve created a suite of employability courses to give students the skills they need to secure, and sustain, a job. The suite of courses are perfect to be added into a study programme for independent learning for your post-16 students, whether it’s to help them get part-time work whilst studying, look for full-time work once they leave school or secure a position once they have graduated.

The courses cover the following areas;

• Writing an Effective CV
• Interview Skills
• Effective Job Search
• Completing Application Forms
• Self-assessment and action planning for employability
• First days at work
• Building confidence and self-esteem
• Communication in the workplace
• Positive attitudes and behaviours
