This information pack helps students understand employability skills - what they are, how to develop them and why they are important for their career. Many students struggle to understand employability skills, and focus instead on the technical and practical skills which relate closely to specific job areas. But we know that what employers are really looking for is young people who come already equipped with great employability skills that can be applied to any workplace. These are the skills which are sometimes seen as the 'softer' skills - things like being able to communicate with a diverse range of people or to apply creativity and innovation to solve a workplace problem. In the modern workplace, employability skills are essential and should be introduced in the senior years before students begin building their resumes and applying for jobs.
