Preparing for your work / Industry placement and future employment!

Before you start your placement, you will have support from your *curriculum area via employability sessions (*subject to programme of study). The sessions will help you to enhance your employability skills.

Employability is not just about getting a job – it’s about a broader set of skills, abilities and personal attributes that enable us to be successful throughout our working lives.

Employability skills are necessary for the ‘ world of work’ and are sometimes referred to as ‘ transferable’ or ‘ soft’ skills. These skills, alongside our knowledge and achievements will make us more likely to gain employment.

Put simply, employability skills will enable you to:

  • increase your chances of employment and getting the job you want.
  • improve your performance and add value in the workplace.
  • continue to develop and progress in your career

Employability is incredibly important because it affects your ability to realise your potential – now and in your future career!

In addition, we will also provide guidance on writing a ‘standout’ CV, researching employers, e-mailing and calling employers to secure your placement.

Can you enhance your Employability? Your #future could depend on it!
