Staff from NWRC recently attended training on using Social Media for Employability, in Padua Italy. This event was part of the Erasmus+-funded DigiJob-ID project, where the College has partners from Austria, Spain, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Italy.
Lynne Carton-Kelly, from the Careers Academy and Rita Brady, Lecturer in Hospitality and Tourism, undertook the week-long training. This will now allow them to deliver the same training to colleagues in NWRC, who will consequently train students. The training will equip NWRC students with skills in the effective use of social media tools, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
One of the six training modules was delivered by College staff, Catherine Gormley, Lecturer in Business Studies, and Caroline Mc Keever, Lecturer in Health and Social Care. The module, Create a Digital CV, was delivered by College’s project team of Catherine, Caroline and Martin Peoples.
The final element of the project will be an international conference on 8th June, Social Branding – Your Future, which will be held at NWRC. Further details will be published over the next few weeks. #digijobID.
