The choices students make today will impact their personal and professional lives in the future. When they aren’t even sure what they want to study, how can they be expected to make the informed decisions needed to embark on a career journey?
Added to this, there is a real lack of opportunity to give them hands-on experience in the professional world. In an increasingly competitive global market, it is our collective responsibility to help students on the path to success
PDSi’s Workplace Readiness Programme bridges the gap between students (aged 15-18) and the world of work, giving them a head start in developing the right skills and embedding the behaviours that are expected of them in the fields of work, study and life in general, as a young adult. Not only will students gain more clarity on exactly what they want to study and how this will support career entry, it gives them tangible achievements to add to their university application, supports non-academic development and provides them with a grounding in vital ‘soft’ skills needed in today’s professional environment. It’s not just about preparing them for a future career - it’s about empowering them today in building strong relationships, empathy and decision making. The programme lays a solid foundation in personal, social and professional development.
