Employability Course & Assessment - Independent Learner Edition


Course Overview

Young people can find it difficult to secure employment, and to prove to an employer that they are job-ready. The ECA allows young people to show an employer that they are prepared to work and have a good understanding of what is expected of them in the workplace.

The ECA gives 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. Young people 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 who are:

  • Looking for employment or apprenticeships
  • New employees or trainees
  • Trying to improve their skills and confidence in preparing for work
  • Finding it difficult to uphold or keep employment
