What are employability skills?
Employability skills are those skills necessary for getting, keeping and being successful in a job.
They are the skills and attitudes that enable employees to get along with their colleagues, to make critical decisions, solve problems, develop respect and ultimately become strong ambassadors for the organisation.
What are transferrable skills?
Transferrable skills are skills and abilities that are relevant and helpful across different areas of life: socially, professionally and at school. They are ‘portable skills’
Personal motivation, organisation and time management
Research and analytical skills
At Fairfax, students are offered a wide range of activities to develop their employability and transferrable skills, through extra-curricular activities, but also through the curriculum, as all subjects play a part in developing these skills.
