Prospects Diploma

It is clear that employability skills are an essential part of the toolkit you will need whatever you choose to do in the future.  At Farnborough, all students complete the Prospects Diploma over two years which helps them to collate and evidence their own workplace experience and skills.

Students build a ‘professional profile’ which they can use to put together a CV and take with them when they leave College. The Diploma, which is compulsory, forms an essential part of the Tutorial programme and was designed in collaboration with employers, training providers and HE institutions to ensure that it meets the needs of future employers and education establishments.

Your Personal Tutor will help you to set up your Prospects Diploma and you will then spend one period a week working on it.  The programme is split into four areas and you will be able to reflect on your progress and achievements in each section.  The four areas are:

  1. Progression Investigation
  2. Transferrable Skills
  3. Selling Yourself
  4. Workplace Experience
