What are transferable skills and why do we need them? They are skills acquired throughout your life that can be used at any job. Filmed in a sitcom format like The Office, this funny but informative program highlights the importance of learning skills to enhance your professional career. It's a great skill to be able to present yourself well in an interview and 'landing' the job, but what do you need to do to keep a great job? This program also explains the importance of recognising your transferable skills including communication in the workplace, problem-solving skills, and teamwork.
