Wilberforce College students have been preparing for life in the workplace by taking part in an employability skills day.

The workshop was designed to raise students’ understanding of skills such as team-work, confidence, problem solving and communication – with KC, Barclays and Water Aid hosting sessions throughout the day.

KC teamed up with educational workshop provider Engaging Education to deliver tips on how to communicate effectively, before the students filmed their top-10 tips for effective communication.

Hayley Turner, cross-college English coordinator at Wilberforce College, said: “The students found the workshop really engaging and it helped to develop their understanding of communication in everyday life.

“Even those students who were initially reluctant to get involved gave it a go and loved it!”

Brendon Smurthwaite, KC’s community coordinator, said: “Communication is a key employability skill and through the workshop the students learned the many ways in which they can communicate effectively in different situations.

“They really bought into the session and came up with some great tips.”
