Create your own personal brand LinkedIn Workshop - Sydney Course

If you're looking for a job or to network and connect with other professionals in the industry, then having a profile on LinkedIn will be helpful to you! LinkedIn is the world's largest professional network on the internet.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create or update your LinkedIn profile. A LinkedIn profile showcases your unique professional story and brand. It details your experience, skills, and education.

LinkedIn regularly adds features to increase its capabilities as a personal marketing platform and gives you new ways to signal your skills, knowledge, and motivations. In this workshop we will help you find new ways to build your personal brand on LinkedIn.

By the end of the workshop, you will know how to confidently create or update your LinkedIn profile, how to promote yourself and how to find job opportunities.

This course is part of our Work Ready Program. The MCC Careers Centre can provide you with professional careers guidance and help you jump on the pathway to your next job!

We recommend that you take the first step to becoming work ready and undertake an ERS Career Development Assessment using the Employment Readiness Scale™ (ERS) tool. The ERS is an online self-assessment tool that measures how ready you are for work, identifies gaps in work readiness, creates action plans to move you towards becoming work ready and makes referrals to programs and services to help you find work.

Where to from here? After this course, the next step in the Work Ready Program is to work on the skill gaps that have been identified. Our 1 day job ready workshops are perfect for all abilities and include:

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning

Credit transfer (CT) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Credit transfer is a process that provides students with agreed and consistent credit outcomes for components of a qualification based on identified equivalence in content and learning outcomes between matched qualifications.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is defined in the AQF as follows:

  • Recognition of prior learning is an assessment process that involves assessment of an individual’s relevant prior learning (including formal, informal and non-formal learning) to determine the credit outcomes of an individual application for credit.

This is underpinned by the AQF definition of credit as follows:

  • Credit is the value assigned for the recognition of equivalence in content and learning outcomes between different types of learning and/or qualifications.
  • Credit reduces the amount of learning required to achieve a qualification and may be through credit transfer, articulation, recognition of prior learning or advanced standing.
