Welcome to the Workability department

The Workability team at Milton Keynes College can offer you free training and support, helping you start a job in the career path you want.

If you are an unemployed adult looking to get back into work, or an employed adult who would like to improve your skills, we can offer the support, knowledge and confidence you need in order to succeed.

Am I eligible for a free course - as in, I don't have to pay any money?
If you can answer 'yes' to the following questions, we may be able to help you:

  • Are you aged 19 or over and on benefits?
  • Are you actively looking for work?
  • Are you interested in short, employment-focussed courses?
  • Would you like to gain vocational qualifications relevant to the current job market?
  • Would you benefit from improved confidence and motivation?
  • Would you like to improve your career prospects?

Getting Started
You will be invited to attend our Workability programme that will introduce you to Milton Keynes College, improve your employability skills and help to decide the right pathway for you going by your needs and aspirations.

Assess to Impress
What are your strengths and weaknesses? What do you actually enjoy doing? We will help you to identify where your talents lie, and help you overcome any potential barriers that may be stopping you from getting into work. You will set long and short term goals to help you achieve your full potential. You will also receive a one-to-one session with an expert tutor to design your personalised action plan.

Job Applications, Knowledge and Interview Skills
It is always important to prepare for job interviews, and essential to know how to. We will help you to understand the preparation process, and how to sell yourself to an employer effectively. We will prepare you for those sometimes difficult interview questions with confidence, so you can say exactly where you want to be in five years time, or how you overcame a difficult situation. You will practice what you've learnt with mock interviews, with constructive feedback provided.

CV Development
Learn how to create an impressive and smart looking CV to show off your skills and experience. You will also gain confidence in personalising your CV to suit different roles.
