Leaving school to enter the world of work, further training or education is both an exciting and daunting time. The prospect of independence is often overwhelming.
Talk About The Future supports students preparing to leave school or college by developing the competencies needed to take this next step with confidence and a positive mindset. This school workshop contains meaningful activities meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks.
This workshop is aimed at students who are either in their final year of secondary school or in Sixth Form – with a focus on improving their connections with employers, colleges and universities.
At the end of this workshop students will be able to keep their workbook which will assist them in creating their first CV, completing their UCAS application and preparing for upcoming interviews.
