Description:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We are offering a fully facilitated group employability programme for students in Year 12 & 13 (S5 & S6 in Scotland) 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 will have the opportunity to work with mentors from M&G, exploring a series of interactive activities to understand topics such as key employability skills needed in the workplace, how to create an effective CV and how to stand out at interview. Through the course of the programme, they will also develop softer skills such as communication, resilience, and teamwork.
