Course content

So what’s involved?

Day 1: Meet new people
Don’t worry about turning up on your own – there’ll be about 12 people joining and everyone will be in the same situation. It’ll be informal and there are plenty of activities so you’ll soon feel part of the group.

Week 1: Take action
Over this week, you’ll start planning for the weeks ahead – setting out what you want to achieve and finding out how to get your qualifications.

Week 2: New experiences
You’ll spend this week away – trying new things and learning how to work with others. This gives you a chance to break away from your current situation – trying canoeing, climbing, raft-building and much more.

Weeks 3-6: Something to talk about
As a Team, you’ll decide on a project to benefit your local community and carry it out. This gives you great experience to talk about at interviews.

Weeks 7-8: Work placements
This is the time to see how the skills you’ve developed so far can help you in the workplace. It’s also a great chance to try out a type of work, or company, to see whether you like it.

Week 9: Plan for the future
You’ll get help to write a fantastic CV, practice your intervieskills and write applications.

Weeks 10-11: Meet the challenge
You and your Team will take on a challenge to help others in the community. This is when you get to test out all the skills you’ve developed.

Week 12: Have your say
In your final week, you’ll deliver a presentation – giving you the chance to show off the talents you’ve discovered! This may sound scary now, but after 12 weeks you’ll be surprised at how far you’ve come.

 

There is no assessment, just attendance.
