We offer further support to Schools and Colleges through our Outreach Service, which can be delivered in a virtual classroom setting, supporting you through Covid-19, or on-site.
You choose the Students, and which workshop you would like delivered, we take care of everything else.
Our Outreach Service is delivered by one of our Outreach Managers and consists of 3 sessions, up to 1 hour each, delivered in 1 day. These are designed for up to 12 Students of your choice per session, and will include an employer volunteer from our network.
After each session Students will complete a short-form survey to evaluate the session, and help us understand what type of follow up support the Student would appreciate – email, text or call. Student progress will be updated by our Outreach Manager, and a follow up will be made to each Student, giving a next step, and details of key events coming up.
We can provide 1-2-1 coaching calls to all Students that have attended an Outreach Session, and Students are shown how to request a coaching call through a dedicated Student Inbox.
Post delivery of our workshops, we supply schools with a report on the Students progress through our programme. We provide insight into how Students have overcome challenges, improvement of confidence and recording event attendance.
