What we're aiming to achieve
We understand that life sometimes gets in the way, for us all. For young people who have already experienced disadvantage, trauma or negative school or life experiences, the prospect of going back into learning may be a difficult pathway.
The primary purpose of the qualification is to support young people in overcoming barriers to entering work. So, alongside the hard skills that will be developed through participation on the course, learners will also be supported by life coaching strategies that will help them build resilience, confidence and self-esteem.
We want our learners to be successful. Upon completion of the course, they will be armed with a career map that is aspirational and clearly lays out the outcomes they seek in the future. To assist in this process in week 12, all learners will be matched with a mentor who may be a professional in the field the young person wants to enter. The mentoring offer is for one year, the aim being to ensure that the young person stays on track and secures employment, further training, or business start-up.
