Employability

It is important to develop the skills that will help you to find and keep a job so we offer Employability as part of your Study Programme if you are studying at Entry 2 or above.

The Employability units available include planning for progression, searching and applying for jobs, interview techniques and undertaking a placement.

You will be given the opportunity to complete a work experience placement as part of your course. This will be with a relevant employer and some students have gained employment because of work experience and the skills developed.

We have links with lots of employers including The Women’s Hospital, Alder Hey Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs, Fareshare, The Brink and many small employers such as Bleach Hair & Spa and The Gift Café.

In addition, we invite employers into college to offer workshops throughout the year.

Job search is offered as an enrichment activity, which supports CV development and researching current job opportunities.

Employability Case Studies

Greenbank College student Daniel in Alder Hey Hospital

“As a result of the work experience placement arranged through College, I now volunteer regularly at Alder Hey Hospital as part of the Patient Experience Team. This has really made a difference to my personal development – my confidence has increased tremendously and through my work, I can really make a difference to hospital visitors. The experience that I’ve gained is really useful when completing job applications and will help me to get my dream job in the future.”
