Employability Skills Workshops

A brand new opportunity for 16-24-year-olds to take part in live, interactive workshops.

If any young people you know are currently relying on home-learning and self-starting, what they do next may not be the first thing on their mind. However, Active Communities and EmployabilityUK have joined forces to provide an exciting programme of live, interactive workshops to boost confidence and enhance employability skills.

We have created an exclusive, online-only programme explicitly designed to ensure that students leave lockdown better prepared for their future careers than when they entered. These weekly sessions last for eight weeks, and places are available completely free of charge. The workshops are suitable for anyone between the ages of 16 and 24. Thanks to Zoom, all they need is a screen and a willingness to commit to the programme. The Introduction workshops are on Tuesday afternoons from 2nd June 2020 to 21st July 2020, and the interactive, online nature of our workshops ensures that you can participate from anywhere. Places are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our online workshops are designed to boost confidence and to give students the tools they need to succeed as their careers and further/higher education aspirations become a core priority. We begin with an introductory session, followed by weekly workshops where students will:

  • Hear from leading trainers on the A-Z of Super Confidence and how to  ‘Be Your Best You’
  • Learn the importance of branding themselves
  • Understand more about how their personality can influence their career choices
  • Better understand their strengths and talents
  • Introduce vision boards as a creative way to express their goals and  plan their future
  • Learn the ingredients of the perfect CV and the ideal job interview

Participants that complete the programme will gain access to further online resources and will have the opportunity to participate in 1:1 sessions with mentors – also at no cost to them. We hope your young people will join in and we look forward to meeting them.
