35 students have been awarded certificates from the Chartered Management Institute after taking part in a programme aimed at developing developing resilient and resourceful future leaders.
The Victoria College students are the first on island to receive the award due to funding by Saltgate working in collaboration with the Resilient Leadership Company.
As a member of the Chartered Management Institute, the students will gain a certificate that is recognised against the national occupation standards and designed in consultation with employers to meet today's demands in the workplace.
Simon Riley, Saltgate CEO, said his company was delighted to help Victoria College with the programme, "as understanding how to manage your own resilience and wellbeing is a key skill in the workplace."
"Team members today need to be multi skilled, flexible and able to quickly adapt to changing environments, markets and pressure," he added. "Through realising their own personal triggers for anxiety when under pressure and knowing how to manage them, these students will benefit greatly in their future professional lives."
“The Resilient Young Leader programme's partnership with CMI means that the students are provided with a comprehensive range of value adding and support services that make it easier for them to enhance their capability and their credibility for future employment opportunities," David Ogilvie, Director of Resilience Development Company, explained. "The benefits associated with CMI membership and the online services will provide students with exclusive access to a vast array of online resources designed to help them to quickly apply the very best management practices in their role on a day to day basis freeing them up to add real value to their organisation.
"With '71% of students saying that engaging with CMI significantly improves their employability', and '75% of employers saying that students should pursue professional qualifications' the certificate greatly improves their employability. It's CV-enhancing, making them stand out to employers.”
