What is Skills Training?

Skills training provides a wide range of free workshops delivered by industry professionals, on subjects from leadership to personal development and more. They can help students looking to improve their career prospects, academic skills and further their personal development, developing the key skills that employers are looking for in graduates. Training is delivered by PwC, local businesses, University staff and Student Trainers.

Each year we recruit and train a team of students to become Student Trainers. Student Trainers are qualified to deliver relevant, engaging and interactive workshops to a culturally diverse audience, on topics that matter to you.

Why Skills Training?

With graduate recruiters looking for more than an academic record, you need to stand out from the crowd. Skills Training sessions will not only enhance your CV, but help you develop key life skills in an engaging way. By reflecting on the skills you need to strengthen, and undertaking a training session to develop, you can show that you can:

  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses
  • Reflect on your behaviours
  • Proactively change or manage yourself
  • Realistically set personal targets and goals
  • Shape your own future
