  • To explore your job ideas and to develop your career plans
  • To try out some work tasters

  • With your CV and getting ready for an interview
  • With interview clothes
  • Help with relevant travel costs
  • To understand and developing your life skills (for example, time and budget management)
  • To develop your employability skills – what employers expect from you

We will work with providers on your behalf  to create programmes that are of interest to you.
