Employability Workshop Community Learning for ESOL Learners
This is a course for ESOL learners wanting to gain the tools needed to apply for jobs and employments. Emphasis is enabling learners to develop a positive attitude to working, interviews and the content required within their C.V. We encourage practice of the likely questions to be asked at interview and how to discuss salary expectations. This will improve English and their basic maths through interesting and interactive modules/topics.
All of the learning will be through individual and team challenges that involve improving conversation, vocabulary and friendly rivalry.
Resources are given relevant to the work covered and notes are encouraged, as well as small amounts of home work.
The topics are relevant to the current trends in applying for employment, types of interview, salary and wage expectations, positive body images, selling yourself at interview, completing application forms and designing covering letters. Learners understand about references and how to gain potential references.
Skills are developed in talking about relevant experience, describing personality behaviours and understanding interview vocabulary.
