Employability Course & Assessment
Young people can find it difficult to secure employment, and to prove to an employer that they are job-ready. This is also often the case with more mature job seekers returning to work after a career break. The iCompassUK Employability Course and Assessment (ECA) allows those new to employment, to learn and embed the behaviours sought after by employers and gain a good understanding of what is expected of them in the workplace.
Our experienced trainers deliver that extra edge by clearly demonstrating what an employer is looking for in a top employee. These are not skills normally taught in schools or universities and can be sometimes seen as qualities more important than even academic success. Job seekers and employers can be assured that the skills learned on the ECA, will increase their productivity and effectiveness.
Who is the ECA aimed at?
Young people and mature job seekers who are:
- Looking for employment – apprenticeships, traineeships, graduate programmes, movement to work participants
- New employees or trainees – apprentices, graduates, interns
- Trying to improve their skills and confidence in preparing for work
- Finding it difficult to uphold or keep employment
The course covers 8 core sections, with interactive questions throughout and a final assessment. Additional modules such as Personal Branding are also available. The course can be delivered in its entirety or the sections tailored to fit the specific needs of a programme or employer. The training can be on-site or virtual and entails discussion, thought provoking choice options and specially designed scenarios. As with all iCompassUK courses, content delivery is web based, engaging and led by expert tutors.
