Employ Me! #4

The 4th Round of Employ Me! took place at the end of January 2014.  This is a scheme to help care leavers broaden their career horizons and to improve their employability skills through a series of tours and activities.

On the first day, 6 young people attended  British Gas to explore the importance of having a good attitude and how to be professional. They then moved on to Ford & Slater where the young people took part in a tour and a team building activity to build a stretcher out of duct tape to successfully lift one of their party off the ground.

On the second day, 3 young people attended Nylacast for a tour and to look at the impact of behaviour and attendance on business and colleagues at work.  Following this was a visit to the Marriott Hotel where they had mock interviews and feedback on their performance.  One of the young people said about his experience: “ This has made me feel more responsible to change my life.”
