INtel Futures Programme

Introduction

INtel College views embedding a suite activities in the student journey within their programme of study, as providing opportunities for students to develop knowledge, skills, experiences, behaviors, attributes, achievements and attitudes. This is to enable graduates to make successfully transitions and contributions benefitting them, and the economy. Among such activities are employability skills and the placement of students into employment among others.

INtel College offers employability skills and a work placement programme through its INtel Futures Programme.  While several of the current College programmes offer employability skills and personal development as a part of their curriculum, the INTEL’s FUTURES programmes incorporates a wide variety of additional activities..  This is because employability is complex and therefore no single area of focus is the solution. It is the combination of a number of areas of focus.  This is the process used to embed key skills, in order to ensure the success of transitioning students into an effective and productive workforce.

All stakeholders including students, their sponsors, academic and support staff, employers and the industry at large are needed, in order to ensure success.
