Every Thursday between 12-3pm we host our weekly Find Your Future drop-in session.
Held in the Youth Hub on the first floor of Barclays in Plymouth city centre, this popular session is aimed at 16 to 24-year-olds who are either care experienced or seeking opportunities to access education, training or employment.
Each week, we invite young people to drop in for a chat and to meet with local representatives about upcoming opportunities.
TODAY, as it's National Apprenticeship Week, our Youth Hub Coordinator, Rhianne, and Jason from the Care Journeys team will be focusing the session on:
looking a Plymouth's 250+ live vacancies
how to apply for opportunities (it's a good idea to apply for a few apprenticeships at a time. This increases your chances and means you’re not waiting for a response from one employer)
discussing what you can expect to earn (including the bursary payments you can get as a care leaver)
advice on CVs and cover letters.
Alongside Find Your Future, there will also be pre-booked appointments taking place with CSW Group, Youth Hub Work Coaches, and the opportunity to drop-in to the Health and Care Job Shop (no appointment needed for this).
If you can't make it in on Thursday and would rather book a call back instead, simply sign up at www.skillslaunchpadplym.co.uk and we'll be happy to help you that way instead.
