The workplace environment has changed dramatically in most business sectors. What are the opportunities and barriers for students entering the world of work? And, do you know how employers nowadays retain talent?  We will introduce the overall vocational education trends in the world and how China’s government prioritises vocational (workplace) education reform in the country. Having a mindset of career planning can empower your employability along the professional pathway.

Given that backdrop, we will dive into some good practices and skill sets often required by employers. We will also discuss how you as a graduate or young professional can be proactive in professional qualification at the workplace by understanding industry trends.

In the end, we will explore some methods of being a career planner by mapping out a plan of upfront skill training and qualification in your interested sphere.

* Employability Week webinars and the Talent Bootcamp are FREE of charge for 2023 graduates and recent alumni of ALL UK universities.
