OUR EVENTS

GET WORK READY

Mini-Version - morning only
Working with young people, who are excluded or self-excluded from mainstream school and those who struggle with social, emotional and mental health needs

For someone who may like the difference and the challenge; it is a morning where we work with small groups and play games, discuss careers and workplaces needs and expectations. Activities generally last between 20 and 30 minutes. The students will often be struggling with some form of trauma, possibly un-diagnosed as yet, learning and behavioural struggles and find school life tricky at times, along with self-regulation.
All students benefit hugely from meeting people who genuinely care about our young people, their self-worth, self-belief and those wishing to allow them to recognise their strengths.
You will leave with the broadest smile on your face!

GET WORK READY

Whole-day event working in a mainstream school

Young people in a mainstream school setting take part in interview and job application challenges that local, national and international employers use within their current recruitment processes. Individual and team assessments, thinking ‘out of the box’ tasks, customer service activities, practical and written exercises, and mock interviews are delivered by the business volunteers who provide real and honest feedback.
A day where energy is high, learning outcomes huge and the young people leave with a ‘toolkit’ to become more ‘work ready’, all thanks to our phenomenal volunteers.
