7th February 2017

Do you want to improve your interview technique or develop skills to help you in the world of work? Two upcoming short courses at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln can help participants do just that.

The university is offering two one-day courses: Interview Techniques in February or June, and Preparation for Work in April.

Both courses can help a range of people from those already in employment, to those looking for employment or their first job and those going back to work after time away.

Interview Techniques on Friday 24 February or Monday 12 June 2017 will give participants the skills to help stand out during an interview, whether it be for work, further education or another venture.

Participants will learn valuable interview techniques throughout the day before completing a practice interview to demonstrate their skills.

The course is open to everyone and costs £60pp or £50 for BGU students and alumni.

The Preparation for Work course can help participants improve communication skills at work, boost confidence and prepare you for the expectations of the workplace.

According to the UK Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), "Businesses are looking for young people who stand out from the crowd. They want you to demonstrate that you have a clear idea of where you’re going in life and show signs of having the personal qualities and confidence to get there" This course is designed to help you be aware of your own skills and how you can transfer them to a work environment.

Open to everyone, the course on Wednesday 26 April 2017 costs just £35pp.
