Delivering Employability Skills Masterclass

I was recently asked by the Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network (GMLPN) to deliver a masterclass to their members on delivering employability skills to Traineeships. It was an enjoyable day with an interactive workshop that was helped by an enthusiastic group. We covered a wide variety of topics from learning styles to barriers and all aspects of employability and job readiness.

Thanks to Matt Leigh of GMLPN for inviting to deliver this masterclass. I look forward to doing more in the future.

I must also give a thumbs up to Hopwood Hall College in Middleton, Manchester, for providing us with excellent facilities and a very enjoyable lunch!
