Workshops and Guides

Teaching young people to stand out in the right way

We work in partnership with school and college careers services, helping to ensure that students more certainly win:

  • jobs;
  • trainee places
  • and work-experience

for their chosen career direction.

Job hunting is a game with well-defined rules. Once young people know how to play, their odds of winning that job they really want jump hugely. Even better, the skills they learn will stay with them for the rest of their career.

SUPPORTED INITIATIVES

All programmes, workshops and guides aim to support and address DfE and Ofsted guidance and requirements.
