Validation for Employability Passport

By 24th May 2019Latest news

We are pleased to inform you that the Engineering UTC Northern Lincolnshire, has successfully passed the LEPs’ (Local Enterprise Partnership) requirements for validation for Employability Passports, meaning that we are now 1 of 36 providers throughout the Humber!

This validation will now allow our students, throughout their time with the ENL UTC, to have the ability to work towards developing and attaining an Employability Passport, that is based on the CBI’s seven employability skills;

  • Self-management
  • Teamwork
  • Business and customer awareness
  • Problem solving
  • Communication and literacy
  • Application of numeracy
  • Application of IT

An Employability Passport, is part of the Humber LEP’s commitment to improving the level of employability skills throughout the Humber.

The UTC’s positive sustained destinations (where students successfully enter into either further education, apprenticeships or full time positions after leaving school) along with the vocational nature of the courses and expertise of our teaching staff, is underpinned by our excellent careers programme.

The programme is designed to enhance our students understanding of employability whilst developing new and existing skills, helping to give them that edge when competing for jobs, apprenticeships, or applying for university places etc.

With the validation, it will now allow the ENL UTC to apply the achievement of the passport into various employer-based activities throughout the academic year.
