The Launchpad is your go to place for Employability, Apprenticeships and Opportunities

In September 2021, St David’s ‘launched’ the Launchpad – an employment service in the college to provide links between students and employers. 

The aim of the launchpad is to provide bespoke support to learners seeking employment, both alongside their studies and as a route for progression. 

Students will get to benefit from one to one support, group workshops and opportunities to network with employers. 

It is important to develop key transferable skills to compliment the academic knowledge gained from your studies, to ensure that you are prepared for the competitive nature of the working world. In engaging with the Launchpad, you will gain skills that will help you succeed in the world of work. 

Students that engage with The Launchpad and take the opportunities that come their way, put themselves in a much better position when leaving St David’s. In taking the opportunities that come your way you will benefit by:

  • Having a stronger UCAS personal statement
  • Creating your own networking opportunities with employers
  • Having valuable experiences that look good on a CV
