The development of transferable skills is important for students to succeed in the graduate labour market. Initially, employers seek evidence in your CV and at interview. As your work life evolves continuous development of a range of skills will ensure you optimise your potential.

This process of Plan-Do-Review will help you to identify, develop, articulate and transfer your key skills from one situation to another improving your employability

During your time at college you will have opportunities to develop your transferable skills through:
Academic Work • Extra-curricular Activities • Clubs & Societies • Part-time • Vacation & Voluntary Work

3 stage model of skill development


Begin the process of skill development - go to PLAN of PLAN - DO - REVIEW cycle
