PEP TALK

A work-ready programme to help graduates kick-start their careers

In 2012, the US firm McKinsey and Co. published some key insights into young people moving from tertiary education into the world of work. It looked at challenges from a student’s perspective, an educator’s perspective and a hiring manager’s perspective, and found students didn’t have all the skills and knowledge they needed to manage the transition well. This inspired us to talk to universities, polytechnics, students and employers to see what was happening locally. Utilising our learning design principles and learning model, we developed Peptalk – an innovative blended learning programme that provides young people with the inspiration, motivation and skill set to successfully shift gear from a student mind-set to a workplace mind-set.
