Improve your employability skills for the New Year! Attend this Information Session to find out if this course will benefit you!

Futures are offering local job-seekers a chance to gain the self-confidence, skills and competencies needed to take the next step towards gaining employment or progressing in their chosen field.

Through this short course, learners will gain an understanding of key topics including:

• Goal setting and planning for career progression
• Searching and Applying for jobs
• CV best practice
• Interview techniques
• Team work including working with others and communication

Upon completion, learners will not only have developed their skillset in these areas, but will gain a formally recognised qualification in Employability from City and Guilds.
Futures will then work with the candidates to ensure they receive ongoing support for their next steps, whether this be into further training and development or into sustainable employment.

All learners who successfully complete the qualification will be provided with £30.00 “love2shop” vouchers which can be used to support the learner in gaining suitable interview attire or other work related items.

The course will be run from our Futures Nottingham centre and will be delivered for 6 days based over a two week period in December in preparation for applying for jobs in the New Year, dates as below.
