The Thrills of Transferable Skills

The Thrills of Transferable Skills

About the event

A thought provoking and engaging presentation which will focus on the subject area your class is studying and delve into the transferable skills and attributes they’ll be developing.

Skills and experience will be explored that can be carried forward into various job roles and beyond. This can help contribute towards their UCAS Personal Statement writing and or CV/job applications in the future.

Learners will:

  • Hone down on skills gained in their subject area
  • Give real examples and demonstrate how they have gained such skills
  • Compare skills for further study or roles
  • Understand how the skills are linked to UCAS Personal Statement
  • Look at graduate jobs and the importance of transferable skills

This presentation will be adapted to look at transferable skills for any class/subject area.

Duration: Up to 50mins

Please specify the subject area in the ‘Further Information’ section of the booking form.

Delivered face to face at your sixth form/college.
