Free online employability skills bootcamp

We know the pandemic is causing a significant decline in graduate jobs and internship roles, in turn impacting a student’s mental health and limiting the access to opportunities during economic recovery. This is why we at ProjectSet are launching our ‘Skills Bootcamp’ – a 10 week free, online programme to help students and new graduates develop employability skills and kickstart their careers!

Our bootcamp (supported by ISE) highlights 9 key skills that employers look for during the hiring process. The programme is specifically designed to give students opportunities to grow and add to their CV.

As an alternative to a summer internship, the ProjectSet Skills Bootcamp will also allow students to build a digital portfolio, get mentored by industry experts, access graduate jobs and internship roles, and much more!

One Hour Project – an opportunity to talk to an industry expert

Are you interested in having a one hour conversation with an industry expert?

We are pleased to promote an external national project, the One Hour Project, that aims to help those who do not have a privileged background and are the first in their family to complete a degree to access a professional network. These networks open doors for students, enabling them to make sense of different opportunities and make informed career choices. Through the 1 Hour Project you will learn more about your strengths and gain confidence.

Please go to the website and apply

There is a useful video here to watch

This is what one of our students who took part has said:

“I loved the experience. The person I was put in contact with was very kind, in fact, our conversation lasted longer than the hour we had planned, she answered all my questions and offered me her help for the future in case I needed it……I think it is very useful to talk to professionals living in London to know what to expect when looking for a job or starting your own business”.
