BT Work Ready is running a course which starts on March 23rd at The Station, Silver Street in Bristol. The event is designed for those aged between 18 and 24 who aren’t in education, employment or training. It gives the young people the opportunity to spend 2 weeks with us expanding on their skills, looking at CV writing and interview skills, but also focusing on their confidence and how to show what skills they already possess. We also give them the opportunity to improve on their digital skills, spending 3 days focusing on this with elements of coding and app design. They will also spend 2 days out on work experience, either within one of our centres or out with one of our Openreach engineers.
The course is completely free for the young people to attend, and they will be given lunch each day they are in the training venue. We also cover their travel costs up to £9.50 per day.
We don’t guarantee any jobs, but on the final day, we hold a celebration event where we invite employers from the local area and the young people have the opportunity to showcase their new found skills.
I believe that you work with young people who fit into this category and wondered if it might be something that you might be interested in sending some of them to attend. Please contact Daleep if you’d like to discuss further.
