Developing a Workplace Mindset in Young People

1-Day Workshop

Aim of the Workshop

Helping young people with the skills they need to help them fulfil their potential and meet the needs of the 21st Century workplace.

We provide them with the professional know-how they need in the world of work to advance and succeed.

We deliver a series of ½ day workshops 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.

Who are these Workshops for?

How the Workshops Will be Run

These are ½ day workshops (3 hours) for small groups of young people (max 12).

They will be very interactive requiring participation but will be fun!

The workshops will challenge young people and hold them to account for changing behaviours, taking action, trying different things.
