Pick ‘n’ Mix to Employment - for 16-24 year olds - who would like the opportunity to learn about themselves and the world of work in a warm, nurturing, community setting. Our aim is to support young people who are keen to ultimately move into paid employment but need some support beforehand.

The course takes place on three afternoons per week all starting at 1pm (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) with sessions lasting for up to 2.5 hours. Young people can choose which sessions they want to attend (or do all 3!).

The sessions are:

- Tuesday – Feel Good session – have fun, make friends and tend to your wellbeing through a range of activities and outings

- Thursday – Job Taster session – find out about a different job each week!

- Friday – Employability session – through fun activities, learn about yourself, how to look for opportunities and how to do applications and CVs
