Our research has found that 63% of the young women that we interact with are not confident in their ability to create an outstanding CV and job application. Another 45% are not confident in their interview skills and techniques.
The purpose of this programme is to help participants to successfully enter the job market with confidence so that they can break into their chosen career paths and be succeed within it.
The Start Your Career Right Programme is a 3-week programme that will provide your students (in Years 10-13) with the necessary knowledge, resources and advice to help them start their careers in the right way. Each week we will deliver a workshop on the following topics: CVs, Applications and Interviews.
We piloted this programme in 2020 by pairing 5 participants with a career coach over a 6-month period where they covered the areas mentioned above in further detail. The participants were encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone, learn new competencies and practice their interview skills.
We are pivoting this programme as we want to make it more accessible to a wider range of participants and provide them with the necessary knowledge, resources and environment to help them launch their careers in the right way, giving them a head start when spearheading the job market.
