Now in its fifth academic year, Building My Skills has received national recognition, including winning Business in the Community’s National Big Tick for Education Partnerships and the Civil Engineering Contractors Association Inspiring Education Award.

Those involved will receive five employability guidance sessions, each delivered by a different business guest who provides insight into their career path, their sector and employability skills they value. Guest speakers also provide support with the completion of a ‘checkpoint’ – a piece the student completes to enable them to build their employability portfolio.

Students who complete their employability portfolio and attend all sessions will be offered a place at the regional mock interview day at St James’ Park in June 2018.
