Core2Success supports individuals that want to understand and develop a range of core skills that employers have identified as the most important when searching for the right candidate for a job.
Candidates on our core skills training programme will explore the different skills that are deemed most relevant to different industries. Candidates will also take part in a range of practical and interactive tasks and challenges to put their own core skills to the test and develop these skills and enhance employability.
Participants work within a small group of up to 12 like-minded candidates and are led on by one of our friendly tutors. In addition to the course outcomes, participants will also achieve a Certificate in Employability Skills which is a nationally recognised qualification and can be included on a CV.
Each day of the course will see candidates take part in a range of active learning workshops, self-development portfolios, interactive group discussions and working partner presentations.
