Workplace

The Workplace strand of our work concentrates on creating and developing a foundation for future employment and skills necessary to both enter and succeed within the workplace environment.

Our Workplace workshops teach important skills for young people to have as they transition into working life. This includes areas such as writing techniques for CV, writing college/university and job applications, key interview skills, writing letters/emails, meeting etiquette, digital competences and self-management.
