Incorporating ‘Extracurricular’ into Your Curriculum

With the federal government announcing changes in the funding model for universities, our training program is tailored to increase student employment rates and provide an innovative approach to supporting your students’ success. ASPL’s program covers key aspects of employability that are currently considered ‘’extracurricular” that may make the difference in gaining opportunities and succeeding in them.

ASPL’s team of expert consultants has extensive experience in recruitment and delivering specialized training for job seekers – which we have drawn on in preparing this training program for university students. Based on our existing training program frameworks and expertise,  ASPL Student Coaching services can include:

Video Interviews

Remote Job Orientation

Overcoming Biases Online

model for university funding

The program will also reflect the state of play in 2021 and cover key factors that are likely to make it more attractive to university students, such as the following:

Specialised training content for job search training
in the COVID-19 environment​

  • ASPL will ensure that students are confident in applying for jobs using the latest online video meeting platforms
  • Content will also recognize that in interviewing for a role via Zoom, for example, a graduate is also demonstrating their ability to work remotely should they be successful in winning the role.
  • ASPL will offer role playing for job interviews via remote video software

Training tailored for female and international students

  • Lean In approach for women in the workplace
  • All STEM courses are a particular focus at federal, state and university level for improving the employability of female graduates
  • Ensuring international students are confident in expressing themselves and communicating with supervisors and colleagues

On-going support – ASPL will also add participants to their internal recruitment database and and cadetship placement programs, provide a follow-up report to the university 4-6 months on to demonstrate impact, provide the university with a report on the participants and their strengths and suitability, review the training programs as the are rolled out, tailoring them to requirements

ASPL would welcome the opportunity to incorporate learnings into an academic process, whether it is teaching or research, and are happy to consider ongoing partnerships for placing students and graduates into positions they are recruiting for across Australia.
