Free Student Employability & Industry Engagement Program in full swing

The Study Sunshine Coast Student Employability and Industry Engagement Program is in full swing with cross cultural competency training, leadership workshops, personality profiling workshops and workplace conversation workshops commencing in March.

The 8-week Project Global Citizen (PGC) program commenced last week with 30 scholars from USC participating in the cultural intelligence program. “We have a highly engaged student cohort in this Semester’s Project Global Citizen program. We were blown away with their input and contributions in workshop 1 last week,” Marina Murray from Study Sunshine Coast said.

“The fully subsidised scholarships to join the program were in high demand this year. We were oversubscribed by students applying and now have a waitlist for future programs,” Murray said. PGC is a blended learning program that radically improves students cultural competency skills for studying, living and working across cultures as a truly global citizen. Learn more.

Earlier this month, Study Sunshine Coast (SSC) partnered with USC to deliver a Leadership Mindset workshop for USC Student Leaders. Josh Farr from Campus Consultancy facilitated the workshop that students could attend face to face on campus or remotely via Zoom.  The workshop covered essential tips and advice on how students can develop and evolved their leadership skills and utilise these skills in real world examples.

SSC is also partnering with USC this Semester to deliver a weekly workshop for students called Workplace Conversations for Placement. The workshop series is geared to help students going on placement better develop their communication skills for a successful placement experience. 

Students will learn about expectations in the workplace, practice your spoken communication skills, get practical tips from fellow students and enjoy free refreshments. Students who would like to join these weekly face to face and Zoom workshops can register for the USC Student Hub.

SSC hosted yesterday at TAFE Queensland its third AusID Personality profiling workshop. Over 30 international and domestic students attended the workshop that provides students and teacher with greater self awareness, teaching them fundamental life skills from the perspective of their own innate personality. The workshop also builds rapport and strategies to integrate into the Australian culture and lifestyle more effectively.
