Overview

Making the Move to Work

Making the transition from a study or non-work environment to work is exciting but potentially daunting. This short course has been designed to make you more aware of what employers are currently looking for when they recruit new staff and how you can make the most of the technical qualifications, skills, experience and personal qualities that you have when presenting yourself for employment.

 

The unit is aimed at jobseekers who are actively seeking employment, either to go into their first role after leaving school or college, or as someone returning to work after a period of absence. The unit considers a range of generic skills and capabilities that employers look for, over and above technical qualifications and experience, which have been shown to make new employees more successful within a role. Employability skills include a range of behavioural and interpersonal skills that you can use to demonstrate you are able to interact and work effectively with others at work. These employability skills enable you to be more successful at job applications and interviews.

 

Gain Practical Employability Skills

As well as reviewing a range of practical employability skills, the unit enables you to assess your own skillset in terms of employability and to develop your own personal development plan. The course concludes with a requirement for you to develop your personal curriculum vitae (CV) and prepare for an appropriate job application and interview.

 

These skills are essential for all jobseekers in the modern working world and will help improve the chances of employment for all those completing this qualification.
