A series of workshops will take place in Luton next month aimed at enhancing young people’s job prospects by raising their game.
The programme has been developed by local charity Unleashing Potential, together with the National Careers Service. It is supported by the council and Job Centre Plus.
The Raise Your Game skills workshops will target youngsters aged between 18 and 24 who are not in employment, education or training.
Everyone who signs up will have the opportunity to to take part in three workshops over three weeks.
The sessions will encourage participants to communicate and present more effectively as well as helping with team building, decision making and leadership skills.
Young people will also get the chance to learn about matching their skills with local job opportunities. They will also meet industry professionals and learn about the private, public and charity sectors in Luton.
Unleashing Potential is a local charity led by professionals from Luton who initiate skill sharing projects in the town and in Africa, through their Project Malawi programme.
The first set of workshops begins next week.
