When asked what would help them boost their confidence or skills, they all expressed the need for positive role models that are easily approachable, interview skills workshops, etiquette training, telephone manner and what is appropriate behaviour in the workplace (what are employers looking for). They felt traditional CV building workshops were useful only if they had valuable experience to add to their CV.
With this in mind our young people have come up with ‘Food for Thought’ a mentoring programme using cooking as a method to engage. The idea is to expose the group to professionals, take them out of their comfort zones to challenge their existing behaviour/attitudes and then work together to look at how they should prepare themselves for jobs.
