Skills for Success

During your time at University you will have the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills. While a good honours degree will set you on the path to graduate-level employment it is only one element of your graduate profile. To ensure that you are successful after graduation you will need to provide evidence of what we call employability skills (e.g. teamwork, initiative, communication and problem solving skills). To help you develop your employability skills there are a number of opportunities available to you across campus. Further information about Skills for Success is available from the Careers Centre website. 

This course is designed as one of the options for completing the compulsory preparation prior to going on a Placement Year.  Students should either attend the pre-departure conference on the 7th June 2016 or complete this module.  To complete the module, view the short videos and then complete the quiz in Section 5.

To complete your employability audit you will need to enter one of the enrolment keys below.  Find the key that matches your department at the University of Essex, enter it into the enrolment key box (at the bottom of the page) and click Enrol me
