Work Readiness and Professional Skills session

We run activities encouraging learners to consider the benefits of work, whilst developing vocabulary and understanding around the acquisition of professional skills. We discuss essential behaviours to ensure a successful transition into work, and workshop concerns around entering a place of work, finding solutions, and providing strategies for coping with first day nerves.
