Employability Workshops

With hybrid working now the norm, there is reduced opportunity for new employees to learn informally from more experienced people, develop their soft skills and their understanding of office etiquette.

To combat this Ablaze can offer workshops aimed at teaching new employees those vital soft skills and supporting their professional development.

‘I feel more confident in my own ability and have learnt more about what I am capable of. I have a better understanding of how I can use the skills I have learnt in my role.’

The latest Labour Market Intelligence report released by WECA states that the top skills being requested by employers are teamwork, collaboration, budgeting and engineering software. Our workshops, delivered by Ablaze staff and industry experts, cover three of those four areas. We can also create workshops to suit your specific training needs.
