This all-day experience will allow students to work in small groups, alongside a trained ‘Employability Coach’ Student Ambassador, to develop key transferable skills, the opportunity to identify their areas of strength and for development and foster the confidence to showcase their abilities.
The career management and employability skills being taught and tested over the course of the day will ensure that every participant is able to articulate their extra dimension. Most importantly, by fostering key skills in a safe but challenging environment, we aim to build every student’s self-confidence and self-awareness in order to present the best version of themselves to Universities and employers.
