Sometimes it can be difficult to understand what’s expected of you when you start your first job, but with the Job Ready Programme, you’ll have an advantage over other candidates – the Job Ready programme is specially designed to help school and college leavers become better prepared for the workplace.
Thanks to Kaplan, over 600 young people have already found employment in the last three years - you could be next.
If you're looking to work within Customer Service, Business or Accountancy, then the Job Ready Programme is for you.
These short courses are designed to give young people the skills employers are looking for but you wouldn’t necessarily learn at school or college. It's a combination of theory and practical skills, set in a simulated environment, providing essential skills needed for the workplace:
At the end of the two week course you will receive an accredited qualification in employability skills awarded by EdExcel (BTEC Level 1 WorkSkills) meaning you can demonstrate to employers that you will be able to add value to their business.
The Job Ready Programme is now open to 16 - 24 year olds.
If you're looking for work now, or have been out of school for a while, then the Job Ready Programme will help you brush up on those essential skills needed for the workplace. Even if you haven't left school yet, Job Ready is still a great way to prepare yourself for your first job.
The Job Ready programme is held at various locations across Liverpool and Manchester. Find out where and when, through the Jobs Board (just search for 'Manchester' or 'Liverpool').
