Confident You

A 6-week online group-based course to develop young people's confidence and skills for applying for jobs.

In addition to joining the group, young people will be given one-to-one support, with a holistic approach, around the current situation and their wellbeing.

This course will run for 2-3 hours per week for 6 weeks, every Wednesday morning at 10am. We work with school leavers up to the age of 25 and encourage referrals from young people who don't feel fully confident to apply for the jobs or opportunities they'd like.

We will focus on the basic skills required for job-searching whilst also working on team-building/communication and ensuring young people enjoy taking part.

Start date

24th February 2021

Location

Online using Zoom, Teams or Discord

What will be covered?

We will work on identifying skills and qualities, focusing on transferable skills. Young people will create a CV and complete practice application forms, develop skills for online/in-person interviews and set goals for what they'd like to achieve. Through one-to-one support, there will be opportunities to complete core skills qualifications and/or the Employability Award.
