Working with EY, TARGETcareers has produced a new guide for Teacher’s – Developing Student Employability – a Teacher’s Guide.
The guide, which will be available to download for free from 29 January 2018, includes key information for teachers on how to help students hone the skills they have, and develop new ones in demand by employers today.
The world of work is changing and students need to be prepared by developing their employability skills. With so many options after school or college, it is important that students do their research and chose the option that is right for them.
The guide also discusses what employability is, lists the top 10 skills that will help students step into a job, talks about university and the alternatives and much more.
Students across the country will be excited to hear that they can once again compete in the ICAEW100 – a nationwide competition which aims to discover the most promising students with the potential to succeed as the next generation of business leaders.
Following last year’s success, where almost 5,000 students from 150 universities entered the competition, this year’s competition aims to reach even more students, across all university campuses in the UK.
GTI, organisers of the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards, is delighted to announce Google as sponsor for the apprentice of the year award at this years’ event.
Google join an already impressive list of sponsors, including headline partner Clifford Chance and National Student Pride, who is this year’s special partner. The Apprentice of the Year Award will celebrate the accomplishments of one of the most successful apprentices.

Despite the job-hopper reputation of Millennials, latest research shows that graduates are significantly more incentivised to stay at a company as long as they are offered clear career prospects.
The data comes from a survey of 949 students and recent graduates in which they were asked a range of questions about their current and possible future careers.
When surveyed on what prospects graduates actually favour when looking for an employer, over half (51%) considered the most significant as the opportunity to progress to a higher role within the company. A further 20% considered the opportunity to learn about different roles/departments within the company with the potential to transfer, as the most vital reason to stay.
