At SGS, we aim to provide learners with the skills required in order to progress into further study and training or employment upon completion. Key attributes required by employers are that individuals be enthusiastic, motivated, presentable (in some instances in company uniform), organised, articulate, able to think 'outside the box', business-like and enterprising, and that they have a 'can-do' attitude. At SGS, we work with you on all these areas throughout the duration of your programme of study, and your tutor(s) will discuss progress and any areas for development.
As part of their overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter. Our Work Placement Team will assist in gaining a placement and ensure they are on track to successfully achieve, whilst liaising with course tutors to ensure that opportunities to practice and develop employability skills are available at college.
