One great way you can build employability skills during your pathway course is by taking part in Applied Learning Week. This is a special week that happens twice per term, when instead of attending your regular classes, you can participate in a small group project.
These projects are usually practical in nature; previous tasks have included building a website, producing a video, writing a business plan and giving a presentation. Each Applied Learning Week also has a unique theme, such as entrepreneurship, environment and sustainability, and local, national and global causes and issues.
Applied Learning Week helps you to gain a range of practical skills that are very helpful in any job, like communication, organisation, research and teamwork, as well as giving you the option to get to grips with some previously unfamiliar technologies.
