Active Communities & EmployabilityUK Workshops

EmployabilityUK and Active Communities present Virtual Workshops

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 four 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 introductory workshops are on Tuesday afternoons during 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.

“I couldn’t have done it without your help, I would have been lost. Thank you for helping me to believe in myself and helping me to think I can achieve anything I put my mind to. You are one in a million and I am so glad I got to meet you!”

Academy Student

“My mentee had little to no ‘life skills’ upon starting the programme. He was lacking confidence and direction and had never stood up in class to read anything out. After three months of being mentored by myself, he has achieved a great deal and is now confident enough to visit my workplace, email me and now stand up in front of a room full of people and present to them!”

“It has been truly transformational. We have students presenting here today that would not have even spoken out in a lesson last October. This programme really is going to change some of our young people’s lives.”

Interim Vice Principal

“Many of our students have low self-esteem and confidence as well as coming from socially deprived backgrounds and this programme has been brilliant for them. It was a pleasure to be a member of the audience and please pass on my thanks to all the mentors for their hard work.”
