Employability – RecruitableMe
The College’s positive destination figures (where students go when they leave – employment, higher education, apprenticeships etc.) remain well above national average – 97% for 2016 / 17.
This is in part due to the vocational nature of our courses and the expertise of our teaching staff. However, this excellent work within the curriculum is also underpinned by a range of central RecruitableMe workshops and self-help guides. RecruitableMe is the College’s brand for all things associated with employability and progression.
RecruitableMe workshops and guides are designed to enhance your understanding of employability and develop new and existing skills to give you the edge when competing for jobs, university places etc. The workshops and guides cover topics such as:
- CV Writing
- How to find a Work Experience Placement
- How to find Work
- How to be successful at interviews
- How to complete application forms
- Guides to psychometric testing
- How to write a Personal Statement
- Is HE for me?
- Labour Market Information
Workshops and guides are added each year in response to student feedback and demand.
Students will also have the opportunity to work towards a RecruitableMe passport. The passport supports students to evidence the development and attainment of 22 employability skills. The passport is built into the Group Personal and Professional Development (Tutorials) sessions.
