Skills Training

In order to get Ready for Work, students are advised to obtain additional skills over and above their academic competence. New students are exposed to new skills via UPO and AIM modules for computer and writing and have access to packages on the Enterprises UP website free of charge; this is a valuable resource to get ready for the workplace.

Also, check TuksCareers for additional workshops and training opportunities here.

The Workplace Skills package on the Enterprises UP website provides modules that will help you navigate being an employee. Completing this module will help ensure that you excel as an employee and offer the best of yourself to your employer. These general skills apply to anyone in any job environment.

After the successful completion of these courses, you will receive a certificate that can be used to enhance your CV.
