THE COURSES

What are the skills courses?

Pagoda Projects have developed a series of skills courses set to encourage the development of student and recent graduate’ current skillset with the fundamental elements needed to improve their ‘work readiness’ for a post-pandemic business world.

The skills series includes courses focusing on Intercultural Fluency, Employability and Digital Competency. We believe this framework provides the learner with the agility needed for a global and ever-changing workplace, preparing them with the knowledge to communicate effectively within an international work-group or team, tackle the job market with awareness, preparation and confidence and have a strong understanding of the importance of ‘digital’ once they enter the workplace.

As qualifications remain a vital measure of achievement, a certificate is provided following each completed course.

Why are they important?

Based on the Universities UK – Higher Education in England: Provision, Skills and Graduates Survey, ‘for both graduates of all levels and subject areas, skills and competencies came first (82.4% reported this to be a formal or important requirement), followed by relevant work experience (66.7%)’ when asked what mattered most when entering the labour market and attaining a job. Similarly, 87% of employers listed attitudes and aptitudes for work more important than relevant work experience, degree result and degree subject when hiring a graduate.

This coherence between student and employer views supports our framework in being able to provide learners with accessible skills courses that can be integrated into professional internships; this would allow them to achieve both the first and second most important values when attaining employment. For non-placement learners, these courses may be integrated into course projects or their own self-development actions, allowing the learner to practice their new skills in real-time.

InternChina on the Great Wall during the Big Beijing Trip 2018

Carolin and Alisha’s University of Dundee Funded Internships

Name: Carolin Labinski and Alisha Ukani
Nationality: German and British
Destination: Dalian
Accommodation: Apartment
Programme details: 2 month University funded internship with Chinese classes
University: University of Dundee
Year: 2018

Carolin and Alisha have recently completed an 8 week internship programme which included Chinese language tuition and two employability sessions, along with one networking event hosted by InternChina.

“If there is one thing I would say about Dalian, it’s that people are helpful. Even if they don’t speak English, they are the most helpful type of people that I have come across.” 

This internship programme was funded by the University of Dundee, and organised through InternChina. Not only do InternChina find participants internships, but we also offer a support system in the city of your internship and organise participant activities, trips and dinners – including trips to Beijing and Shanghai this summer which included participants from each of our destinations!

“For me it was a big surprise that Chinese is not as difficult as people believe, the grammar is very easy and I would encourage everybody to start to learn Chinese.”
