Work Ready Program
What is Work-Ready?
The biggest challenge that young people face today is that they have low self-confidence and cannot see their worth to an employer or, they have so many options and opportunities that they have no clear vision and are confused about the jobs or careers that would suit them best. Talent Dynamics works with young people to deliver a program that empowers them to discover who they are, what they are naturally talented and gifted at and therefore the value that they will add to an employer. Our team of trainers and business mentors work with them to give the insights necessary to ensure that they are applying for roles that keep them in flow which is where they will be happiest and do the best job for an employer.
Work Ready will allow young people to better understand their strengths so that they can confidently talk about themselves at interview and give them the experience of working together on a business project to better understand what is expected of them in a work-place. It’s about enabling them to discover what they are capable of, knowing what an employer is looking for and showing up with the right attitude.
How Does It Work?
Work-Ready will provide training to young people locally using the Talent Dynamics for Young People personal development pathway (see www.backontrackteens.com or Talent Dynamics for Young People for further information). Groups of 10 to 12 young people at a time will be selected from local schools, colleges, universities, training providers, recruitment agencies and Job Centre Plus to undergo an intensive, interactive, experiential and fun 2 day training course that will give them:-
- • Evidence, insight and experience of who they are
- • What they are naturally gifted and talented at
- • The types of roles they will be most suited to and happiest in
- • What value they bring to a business and where they will feel valued
- • Experience of working together on a business-focused task or challenge
- • What to put into their CV
- • How to confidently show up and talk about themselves at interview based on their Talent Dynamics for Young People profile
- • An insight into what a prospective employer is expecting of them and a work-ready attitude
- • A business mentor who will follow up with them with 3 x 1 hour sessions
The Work-Ready program will primarily be funded by local business sponsorship from forward thinking, socially conscious SME’s and large corporates who are locally based.
