Skills development activities

At Queens we have a number of skills development programmes designed to provide employer led workshops and sessions that will concentrate our students on developing and articulating the skills and attributes required by graduate employers. Employer participation for these programmes is competitive as they provide an additional opportunity to raise your company's profile on campus whilst supporting the development of key skills in our students. Our key programmes include

•‘Skills for Success’ Employer-led Workshop Programme

This is your opportunity to contribute to the skills development of future graduates of Queen’s by delivering a workshop, case study or group activity on the key skills required for the graduate world of work. Our Careers, Employability and Skills team will work closely with academic staff to promote these events to students.

•Insight into Management

This programme is designed to help final and penultimate year students develop their skills in team-working, communication, leadership and commercial awareness. Throughout the 3 day course, groups of students complete an intensive programme of business games, simulations, case studies and presentations facilitated by recent graduates in management positions. Both students and facilitators consistently describe the programme as hugely beneficial and enjoyable.
