The following sessions are designed to develop students’ key employability skills, so whether they are applying for an apprenticeship or a graduate scheme in the future, your students will be better prepared.

Students will take part in interactive and engaging activities to develop their key skills.

Personal brand workshops

Students will have an introduction to Linkedin and learn how to set up a profile ensuring they can continue to build their employer network helping them with the next steps towards their careers.

Transferrable skills & strengths

Looking at students 'strengths' will help identify how they can link to a course, job or apprenticeship role. All students will identify and share their skills with another individual, which is an important element of a job application and interview process - developing their confidence to speak in front of peers and present information.

"I would like to say a big thank you Pathway CTM who supported our students with the recent workshops. You did an amazing job. The Pathway presenter was brilliant, and students warmed to them immediately. Students were engaged from start to finish and asked lots of questions. It was good to see students practicing mock interviews using the 'STAR Method' which they had never used before. All sessions were so impactful. Students have come away with valuable insight which will help them to succeed in their up-and-coming interviews."
