Introduction to the Careers and Enterprise Service


Salford Employability Skills

Throughout your apprenticeship, you will be developing a wide range of core skills and attributes that are essential for the workplace and graduate roles. Employability skills are the 'soft' skills employers want candidates to demonstrate to show that they can work well in the organisation. These skills are also essential to become a successful entrepreneur or if you plan to work freelance on projects with clients.
