Workshops to Success Almost Complete

23rd January 2020

Our Workshops to Success sessions have been going from strength to strength but our first series is coming to the end. 

Our participants have had some really engaging guest speakers in recent sessions. Barny Nicholls from Headforwards (a large IT/software development company in Cornwall) delivered a fascinating session on his role and his journey that took him to Headforwards. It was helpful for our young people to know what a normal working day looks like and more of the techy stuff like computer coding. Barny discussed interview techniques and what to expect from online tests.

We have also enjoyed a visit from Claire Bennetts. Claire is a member of the Apprenticeship Team at Cornwall College and helped our young people to really understand their options. The session was so good that all of our participants are looking at apprenticeships as a very real option. 

There was also a really productive shopping trip at Next and M & S in Hayle. We took our young people to buy some new interview clothes. 

Our last session will be on Monday 27th January 2020
