Work Readiness and Resource Centres
he goal of the Employability Programme at our institution is to equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to successfully assimilate themselves into the working world once they leave our campus. In order to make our students Real World Ready, we offer assistance with: Creating a CV, hosting mock interviews, as well as career guidance and advice. From their first year of study, we aim to mold our students into employable graduates who are able to successfully obtain employment and comfortably navigate their working environments. For students who wish to pursue further studies, the Academic Manager and Student Affairs Advisor will assist students in obtaining the necessary information and support documentation for applying for further studies/post-graduate opportunities at our institution or at other institutions.
The Virtual Employability Centre (VEC)
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 are also guided through their employability journeys in the form of regular workshops which focus on an array of topics aimed at improving their skills and knowledge through interactive presentations, discussions and activities.
Monthly workshop schedules will be posted on MyLMS and on notice boards across campus. These schedules will also be emailed to all students at the beginning of each month.
Additional support is also offered in the form of one-on-one consultations.
Employability workshops may also include topics such as professionalism in the workplace, creating your CV, interview skills and mastering the elevator pitch. Our campus will also be hosting a career fair during which students can interact with potential employers, network and practice their skills obtained through the employability workshops and the VEC.
