Become a Student Trainer

What is Skills Training?

Skills Training offers free workshops to students looking to improve their career prospects, academic skills and further their personal development. Training is delivered by PwC, local businesses, university staff and Student Trainers.

Each year we professionally recruit and intensively train a team of students to become Student Trainers. Student Trainers are trained to deliver relevant, engaging and interactive workshops to a culturally diverse audience.

Why Skills Training?

With graduate recruiters looking for more than an academic record, you need to stand out from your peers. By reflecting on the skills you need to strengthen, and undertaking a training session to develop, you are showing employers that you:

  • can identify your strengths and weaknesses
  • can reflect on your behaviours
  • can proactively change or manage yourself
  • can realistically set personal targets and goals
  • are willing to shape your own future

Use these training sessions to try new ways of working with others and understand yourself, your motivations and your qualities. These will all help you make the best impression at interviews.

Can't make a session? We have created short videos on a variety of Skills Training topics that you can watch for free!
