This poster will visualise the creation, launch and delivery of the new online Employability Skills Programme (ESP) during a pandemic for more than 2,000 students. The aims of this programme are to develop the Four Cs of employability skills (Curiosity, Communication, Critical thinking, and Collaboration) and to provide students with lifelong workplace and interpersonal skills. The launch of the ESP during the pandemic was challenging but successful. We will showcase this journey in a creative digital storyboard. Collages, digital sketches, screenshots of the digital workplace and feedback from students and other stakeholders will visualise the narrative of the ESP.
