Foundation Course & Interview Excellence (2 days)
2 day course
This two-day course is designed to build self-awareness, skills and evidence to ensure students step confidently into their next job interview.
Our employability courses are the essential addition to academic qualifications, releasing natural potential to set students firmly on their path to career success.
This two-day course is designed to be the first step and bedrock for each student starting their journey towards employability. To find the right vocation and one they will truly enjoy, they first need to understand who they are, what makes them unique and where they would naturally fit in. Building on our one-day workshop, students begin to use their newfound language and self-awareness to verbalise evidence and skills so students can step confidently into their next job interview. They will leave the course with the advantage of having learnt and practised effective interview preparation tools and techniques enabling them to stand out and build on their own natural ability.
At the end of the course, the students will be able to:
- Proactively use their psychometric profile and understand their personal working preferences
- Articulate their individual skills and provide evidence of them
- Examine working sectors and roles within organisations
- Know how to plan for and confirm relevant work experience
- Understand the power of networks and how to start a conversation
- Know how to make a great first impression
- Understand the importance of proactivity
- Amend their social media networks to increase employability
- Prepare themselves effectively for interview
