Employability Workshop Reviews
The Advice & Guidance team design sessions around employability and progression which are used within the curriculum at various times of the year. These sessions are reviewed annually and it would be really beneficial to have some employer input during these reviews to ensure that the sessions are relevant to today’s employer requirements. This could be in the form of focus groups or 1:1 sessions and would help the students develop the skills required to engage with business’ within the local community.
