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 workshop can support the Gatsby Benchmarks by helping you to address the needs of each pupil (3) and linking curriculum learning to careers (4). Talk About The Future also supports you with Mock Interviews (5) and can form part of a stable careers programme (1).
Post-16 – supports the development of students’ character, broader skills and confidence as part of your 16-19 study programme
This workshop meets the requirements for Impact Level 4 by The Skills Builder Partnership.
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.
