Be ready for work with a one week skills boost or a four week programme of essential skills and work experience. Our programmes are designed for young people just leaving education between 16-24 years old.

One Week Skills Boost Summary

Our one week course is a short programme of workplace skills and etiquette that will help boost confidence as you prepare for a new job or to enter the workforce for the first time. We cover the essential skills needed in communication, teamwork and problem solving whilst providing real life work experience.

 

Four-Week Workplace Skills Programme Summary

On our four-week programme we will help you gain the skills and etiquette you will need in the workplace whilst giving you work experience. You will work on your own project, deliver outcomes and need to meet deadlines, as well as attending training sessions covering not only communication, teamwork and problem solving but also build your understanding of data protection requirements, health and safety at work and add to your digital skills. Our objective is to help you build your confidence by providing the skills that you need to prepare for returning to work or starting your first job. It can also be used as a refresher course if you are changing roles or careers.
