  • Stage 2 – One-on-one Coaching Session Programme

    Following completion of the core course, there is the option of one-to-one coaching sessions. These can be via the telephone, video call, or face-to-face. The number of coaching sessions and the focus of the sessions will depend on the individual. However, for optimum results, the following structure is recommended:

    • Session 1 – discussion of previous work experience, education, skills, and achievements.

    • If a second coaching session is booked, a CV and social media review is conducted prior to the session by the instructor.

    • Session 2 – further discussion to develop a focused Job Application Strategy with SMART objectives that lay out a clear path to success.

    • Session 3 – review of outcomes based on the objectives set in the Job Application Strategy. Further support and guidance offered as is required.
  • Stage 3 – Post-Employment Programme

    Once course participants have found suitable employment, a formal In-work review procedure is implemented that both the employee and employer are committed to. Four reviews take place to ensure the engagement and satisfaction of both parties:

    • First Day Review – Both employee and employer would be contacted to ensure that the employee turned up for work and that a suitable induction process was followed, which resulted in the employee being clear as to the expectations of the role during any probation period. This review could also check that the employee has been made aware of H&S protocol etc.

    • 1-Month Review – Both employee and employer are contacted to ensure that the expectations of both parties are being met. Any issues can be discussed in confidence and can be resolved with clear objectives set for a successful solution.

    • 2-Month Review – Both employee and employer are contacted to ensure that the expectations of both parties are being met. Any issues can be discussed in confidence and can be resolved with clear objectives set for a successful solution.

    • 3-Month Review – Both employee and employer are contacted to ensure that the expectations of both parties are being met.
