Ready for work

You need more than a degree
The world of work has been evolving and there is an increasing demand for tertiary institutions to produce graduates who are employable in the sense that they reflect the attributes, capabilities and dispositions to work successfully. Against this background there is a renewed focus on work-readiness of UP graduates and a Ready for Work initiative has been launched to prepare graduates for the world of work by providing training for additional skills (including entrepreneurship) over and above academic competence and work experience. Self-actualising skills that students can acquire during their undergraduate studies are highly valued. This would assist UP graduates to be comfortable and confident anywhere they may find themselves.
