As a result of Covid-19 and the subsequent economic downturn, students graduating in 2019 or 2020 have entered an unprecedented labour market with many of them sadly finding their career plans now on hold. In response to this, HEFCW have awarded Swansea funds to roll out a new Graduate Support Programme.
Managed and delivered by the Swansea Employability Academy (SEA), this programme will also complement our existing student-focused, ESF-funded GO Wales: Achieve through Work Experience Programme. Its emphasis will be upon achieving better outcomes for people facing barriers who will be most affected by the economic downturn, including disabled people, people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, care leavers and estranged students.
SEA are able to offer a full programme of employability support to all 2019 and 2020 Swansea graduates who are unemployed, underemployed or currently employed in low-skilled roles. The aim of the programme is to help graduates develop further skills and confidence to move them closer to the labour market and help them transition into employment within a more competitive job environment.
