What are the seven employability skills employers want? 

Positive attitude - A positive attitude is not just about being “bubbly”. It means showing that you’ll happily do the work asked of you, and you’ll stay upbeat when the work gets hard. Communication - You show good communication skills if you follow instructions well and you ask questions when you’re confused. Being able to explain things clearly is also a big plus for employers. Teamwork - Playing or working well with others is not just a bonus on the rugby ground or during that science project, it’s something employers value. Can you share the workload and be nice to your workmates? Self-management - Getting to work on time and dressed right is just one part of self-management. Not throwing your toys around when you’re frustrated and managing stress successfully are top skills that will get you a job. Willingness to learn - Learning doesn’t stop once you leave school. Employers want to know that you can learn new technologies or new skills. Being keen to learn is a good bet for getting a job. Thinking skills - Employers rate thinking skills the highest when looking at your CV. Do you like to solve problems? Can you make a good decision? Do you think before you act? Resilience - Have you got grit? When something knocks you down, do you get back up again? This is resilience.  Employers need you to have this skill to cope with the times things go wrong at work.

Contextualised contexts: (What local, cultural, real-life content is involved in this course?)
Scuba Dive course - Students learn to dive in local areas of the Bay of Islands.
