Young Person Gets Future Sorted Thanks to Prospects
Prospects recently held a careers event, Get Sorted
, for young people aged 16-19 to help them decide where they would like their future to take them. Young people received advice on next steps after school and college, help with applications for continuing in education, training, volunteering and work. They also attended workshops on CV writing, interview skills and what employers want.
Prospects has received some excellent feedback from one young man who attended Get Sorted. Whilst at the careers event he had a one to one interview with a Prospects Adviser and was encouraged to talk to the providers and employers. A local training provider invited him for an interview which a Prospects Adviser accompanied him to. The young man was successful at the interview and has started his training this week. Prospects wishes him all the best and looks forward to hearing more about his achievements as he completes his training.
