Career and employability skills development: Feedback from clients

Director of RPA

“The CV session was well prepared and presented. The session was very informative; covering many myths and misconceptions about CVs, their contents and how important it is that they are fit for purpose and relevant to specific jobs. The session was pitched perfectly to meet the needs and requirements of our learners. It gave them tips and hints; inspiring them to believe in their own abilities and raise their self-esteem. An invaluable workshop not to be missed.”

“Graeme talked about the challenges facing young people when approaching employers for work experience, but gave students useful and relevant tips based on his experiences in the world of work. He also made the students feel confident about taking on the challenge and showed them that speculative approaches can and do work. Graeme brought the real world of work into the classroom, from showing students how to create a powerful online presence to the basics of how you make a speculative phonecall asking for a work experience placement.”
