Our Life Skills and Personal Development Programme aims to support young people onto their next step, whether that be employment, education or training.
This is a programme that is tailored to the individual. After filling out a referral form, you will be invited to an initial meeting with one of our youth workers. In this meeting we get to know you and how we can best support you onto your next step. We then offer 1 to 1 coaching and workshops designed to help young people discover their true value and build their confidence, motivation and resilience.
Our coaching underpins the programme. We want to offer you constant and consistent support so that you not only gain employment, education or training, but you sustain it too.
The unique thing about this programme is the involvement of our brilliant business and organisation partners. We have a range of partners who are willing to go the extra mile to help young people and invest in their future. These partners support us by planning and running workshops to upskill and inspire those on our programme, offering work experience, career mentoring, sharing job vacancies and assisting with mock interviews.
Workshops are a key part of our programme. We regularly run an in-house CV Workshop, as well as our Leadership for Life course. We also have a range of business partners who deliver workshops too. For example, Laura Morrison from YourTelemarketing runs our ‘Communicate with Confidence’ workshops to support and improve young people’s confidence on the phone. We have also had Art Therapy Workshops, Martial Arts Confidence Building Sessions and Goals Workshops! We are always working hard to make sure we have relevant and exciting workshops on offer, so check out our calendar or get in touch to see what’s going on!
Our programme has been designed with feedback from both local employers and young people, in order to make sure it is relevant and engaging.
