Work Readiness and Resource Centres
The goal of the Employability Programme is to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully assimilate themselves into the working world. From their first-year of study, we aim to mould our students into employable graduates who are able to successfully obtain employment and comfortably navigate working environments.
Virtual Employability Centre (VEC)
All students have access to the Virtual Employability Centre (VEC): an online platform which affords them the opportunity to increase their knowledge through over 700 short courses.
The VEC also grants students access to an array of career assessments and quizzes, career services tools such as a CV Builder, CV360 CV checker, cover letter builder, and also allows provides students with interview skills through the interview360 tool.
The VEC and employability curriculum differs per level of study and is aimed at preparing students for employment from the very start of their academic career. Students will receive a certificate upon completion of the curriculum.
Work Readiness Webinars
Students are also guided through virtual webinars which focus on an array of topics. The webinars are aimed at improving skills and knowledge through interactive presentations, discussions and activities.
The programme for these sessions are available in the employability guide accessible on the myLMS employability page.
Employability consultations can be scheduled and may include topics such as building a personal brand, CV writing, interview skills, mastering the elevator pitch, networking, negotiation, managing an online footprint, moving into self-employment, understanding individual strengths and weaknesses, and E-applications. Bedfordview campus will also be hosting a career fair during which students can interact with potential employers, network and practice skills obtained through the employability workshops and the VEC.
