A first step to YOUR future...

Employability skills are gained in education and training, part time employment, voluntary or charitable work, sports, extra curricular activities and hobbies. ‘Transferable’ means that they can be used across different types of ‘jobs’ and will help you to shine in future interviews for college, university or a job.


You have already started to gain transferable skills and you will continue to build them throughout your lifetime. Employment & Skills 2019 will help you to recognise your own abilities in team work, communication, self awareness, problem solving, ability to learn and resilience. These prompts will help you to think of examples of your own employability skills.
