“What relevant skills do you have for this position?” You or your students will probably hear this question, or something similar during a job interview. And you may feel  concerned about how you will answer it in a compelling way. What skills can you identify and discuss? Adaptability. Communication. Decision making. Flexibility. Initiative. Innovation. Leadership. Negotiation. Organisation. Problem solving. Teamwork. Time management. We often hear about a range of skills, attributes, competencies or strengths that are needed for our future careers or that our students will require to be job-ready. The good news is that you and your students probably have more than you think! In this workshop, you will identify, reflect on and talk about transferable skills for yourself and your students. Through periods of discussion and reflection, you will begin to identify and communicate your inter-professional competencies, especially those related to teaching and communication.
