People Get Ready – Kensington And Cheslea College Help Young People Secure Apprenticeship Vacancies
Kensington and Chelsea College are leading a London-wide initiative to help young people secure apprenticeship vacancies.
‘People Get Ready’ project gives 16 to 20-year-olds, who were previously unsuccessful in applying for an apprenticeship vacancy, the chance to do a short course aimed at helping them secure their next application.
Those enrolled will be able to access skill boosting training opportunities, motivational coaching and expert advice and guidance on applying for vacancies. Topics covered during the course include:
- An introduction to the National Apprenticeship Vacancy system, what it covers, an overview of the sections and how to search for vacancies on it.
- Common pitfalls, and how to overcome them
- CV advice, including how to make the most of your skills and experience
- Presenting yourself, filming video CVs and practice interviews
- Writing the right things on a CV, and tailoring your application to the vacancies and employers.
- 1:1 Job Coaching, opportunities to attend networking events and visits from employers to highlight their vacancies and discuss what they are looking for.
For more information about the project, or to enrol on the course please contact the college’s apprenticeships team – KCC Works – on: 0207 573 5322
