Mission impossible? Developing graduate resilience and wellbeing skills for future workplace leaders.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

The lightening pace of change in the workplace and the difficulties posed by the pandemic are beyond any individual’s imagination, and for transitioning students this contributes to the current climate of increasing mental health and wellbeing challenges. Nevertheless, recruiting employers expect graduates to be ‘work ready’, focusing on resilience as one of the top three desired skills (CBI, 2019). This research paper shares the evaluation of an institution wide intervention, namely the ‘Graduate Resilience’ project, which aims through emancipatory pedagogy to develop transitioning student’s understanding of resilience and personal wellbeing, deepen their self-awareness as professionals, and prepare them for the future workplace. It is anticipated that the positive outcomes of this research may stimulate CABS colleagues to consider piloting such an intervention within their own institution, particularly in light of the current pandemic and concerns surrounding student mental health
