Your Skills, Your Future!
At Coleg Gwent, all full-time learners benefit from an enrichment programme to support the development of employability skills. The programme, which forms part of your course, includes activities such as work experience, volunteering and involvement in clubs and societies, which develop the skills that are so important to employers and Universities.
Feedback from employers tells us that good exam results and qualifications are important, but on their own, they are not enough to equip you with the skills you need to be successful in the workplace. By developing your employability skills, you’ll improve your chances of getting a job and thriving in your career.
For learners studying a one year programme, these skills will be developed through a series of skills activities that are relevant to the main subject. Completion of the activities may be recognised by an Agored qualification.
For learners studying a two year Level 3 programme, these skills will be developed through the WJEC Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate.
This Advanced level qualification is widely accepted by UK universities as an entry qualification and is worth 120 UCAS points – the equivalent of grade A at A Level. For more information about the new Skills Challenge Certificate from WJEC visit: http://qualificationswales.org/qualifications/welsh-baccalaureate/?lang=en.
The following employability skills will be developed through a series of practical challenges.
