Cost of programme:
We are offering a fully facilitated group employability programme for S5 & Year 12 supported by international financial services provider M&G. The programme takes place across four sessions and aims to explore students’ strengths and areas for development and how best to communicate these when applying for jobs, university or apprenticeships. Students work with mentors from M&G, exploring a series of interactive activities to understand topics such as communication skills, body language, and making a CV stand out with the potential for a facilitated mock interview session with the support of mentors. Various forms of delivery are available, including facilitator led, live sessions and pre-recorded resource packs.
