This is a free taster session for our full online York Strengths Global programme.

Getting your dream job is a complex process, and it requires more than completing your degree. The York Strengths framework helps students become better aware of and improve their key employability skills.

Our session will give you an insight into this unique framework, and will help you plan your own journey into developing your employability skills.

As part of the course, you will get a chance to take a virtual tour in York and/or our beautiful parkland campus.

Looking for our three-week course?

This is a one-session taster, but we offer a three-week York Strengths Global Employability and Communication Skills course that takes you though a full journey of transferable skills development.
