Employability

 

You may have heard this term recently in relation to employers struggling to find suitable candidates to fill vacancies. Students are graduating with a Screen Skills or Media qualification but frequently lack either on the job experience or the specific skills to take up a new role and be effective almost from day 1. In short, they’re not immediately “employable”.

 

Employability is hugely important to the candidate as it significantly increases their chance of being employed and therefore earning an income. For employers, Employability makes it easy for them to engage a new member to their team.

 

Improving your Employability

 

Short courses are an efficient and highly effective way of learning specific skills.

 

Probably not the most exciting modules to add to your CV, but for some employers these are a “must have”:

 

  • ·       First Aid in the work place
  • ·       Safe working practices
  • ·       Understanding Ethics

 

Plus there are short courses on almost any media related subject you can think of.

 

  • ·       Editing, Animation, Drone Pilot, Cinematography, Steadicam, Gimbals
  • ·       Sound recording, Directing, Self shooting, Assistant Director
  • ·       Macro photography, Portraiture, Slow Motion
  • ·       Budgeting, Production Management, Risk Assessment, Hostile Environments
  • ·       Prosthetics & Makeup, Wig Making, Costume
  • ·       1 day to several weeks or months
  • ·       Prices from Free to several thousand £s
  • ·       Taught by experienced professionals
