The world we live in is unpredictable. Things are constantly changing and new technologies are quickly evolving, placing new demands on our skill set. With these unpredictable changes that lie ahead, students are entering a world of work where they may feel underprepared. Adapting yourself to the infinite loop of changes every day is essential!

Bearing these things in mind, how can you feel confident and demonstrate and articulate to employers that you are able to adapt and thrive in such unprecedented times?

To help equip you, we've created the Student Employability Training Programme.

The programme focuses on meta skills - master skills that allow us to magnify and activate other skills quickly and more effectively - and encourages reflective writing on practical experiences. The programme aims to develop your appreciation, acknowledgement, and articulation of employability enhancing skills and experience, helping you to feel more equipped with the skill set required to enter the modern workforce.

Participation levels

The SET programme is designed to be self-led and help you reflect on the capacity you have already acquired, inherited, and possess as a result of progress in your academic studies, extra-curricular activities, and student leadership roles undertaken. With 3 different levels, the programme gives you the opportunity to critically reflect on your absorbed information and help you process information on these skills through LinkedIn Learning courses.

It's a gym to train your mind at your own pace. Select a level to find out more.
