About Our Programme
Choosing a career, apprenticeship or further education course, (and in most cases also coping with mental well-being issues), is a challenging experience particularly for young people in rural areas. Our main aim is to provide professional career advice and personal guidance to create positive pathways for young people.
Skills in life & work
During the programme participants will receive a mix of both life and work skills, achieve accredited qualifications, employment opportunities, help producing professional CVs and introductions to local businesses understanding of personal budgeting and independent living, as well as various workshops, help to ensure they have the life skills to move forward with their lives.
The biggest challenge these young people face is not their determination to move forward but the barriers they face on their journey.
