You’ve probably seen our jazzy Your Skills ads around campus – bright colours, retro photos, that sort of thing? We’re pleased to announce that we are now promoting our workshops on a platform that’s much more accessible for students: Facebook.

The Your Skills Facebook page is now fully developed and we’ve created ‘Events’ for every one of our workshops for you to join so you can keep on top of any updates on workshops you’re interested in. The page will also remind you when deadlines for registering run near, so you don’t miss out!

You can like the page here and check out the list of upcoming workshop events here.

We’ve also currently taken two new students on board as the voice of Your Skills: our student ambassadors, Emily and Nea. We caught up with them and found out why they chose to support Your Skills.

“We are second year students and when Your Skills gave us the opportunity to get involved we were more than thrilled. Your Skills is a great programme, if someone is wanted to develop certain skills to help them at university or in order to improve their employability. From improving your public image or project management [skills], there are an abundance of sessions that will stand you in good stead now and in the future . These sessions are carefully planned, free and only a few hours long, so there is no reason not to attend some!”

Upcoming workshops for the next couple of weeks include Stress Management and Decision Making, as well as the first part of the training course for BEES volunteers – head over to the Facebook page to find out more.
