3aaa Apprenticeships is a training provider with locations across England specialising in the delivery of professional services Apprenticeships including IT, Software, Digital Marketing, Accountancy, Financial Services, Business Administration, Customer Service and Management. 3aaa are a national company offering a personalised, local service in 38 locations looking to partner local talent and businesses together to enhance careers and the economy through workplace training.
FP Training worked in partnership with 3aaa to provide workshops offering coaching and training around developing a workplace mindset in their Apprentices. At FP Training we are aware, through our work with the Princes Trust, of the lack of skills that young people have going into the workplace, often these aren’t technical skills and knowledge but a lack of confidence, self-awareness, motivation, problem solving, a hesitation about taking on responsibility and accountability, a lack of experience in networking and relationship building – all skills and behaviours that employers are seeking in the workplace (STEMNET). There is greater demand for young people to develop their talents and fulfil their potential to contribute to an organisation’s success. These workshops provide them with the professional know-how they need in the world of work to advance and succeed.
A series of ½ day workshops for small groups of young people (max 12) that provide support, challenge and practical skills to build young people’s self-awareness, confidence, and self-motivation to become self-managing and effective in their role and contribution in the workplace.
The workshops are very interactive requiring participation but fun!
The workshops challenge young people and hold them to account for changing behaviours, taking action, trying different things.
