Increasing employability confidence at Henley College

12 March 2020

We recently ran two of our employability skills workshops – problem-solving and interview skills – for a group of Level 2 Business & level 2 ICT students at Henley College which included two volunteer session facilitators from Ella’s Kitchen.

Throughout the session, students voiced their approval, saying they had learnt a variety of new things they believed will benefit them going forwards. These included knowing where to access key resources to aid their employability skills, ensuring they research the company before interviews to give a great first impression and different models they could use to help them when answering questions in front of employers.

Henley College curriculum leader, Swapna Jare said:

“The problem-solving activities were a big hit and it was fantastic to see the wheels in the students’ brains turning. It is great to see our students exposed to new and different challenges and how they all adapt to this.”
