Mentoring / coaching
These can help individuals to identify goals, overcome barriers and reach their full potential. One to one sessions over an agreed period with a qualified coach/mentor can help individuals gain self-esteem and motivation. Individual support available from £25 per hour.
We can help individuals to understand more about themselves and suitable career pathways using comprehensive profiling tools made available in standard and advanced packages. The standard service costs just £25 and is suitable for adults and young people aged 14 plus. You will receive a detailed multiple choice questionnaire for your child to complete. Following this you will be presented with a profile of your child, along with a list of possible suitable career pathways.
The Advanced service will involve a full psychometric profile of your child’s career capabilities lasting up to 3 hours, in a group environment at a Lincolnshire venue. The assessment costs £85 and includes receipt of a comprehensive booklet of your child’s profile, suggested career areas that link to the profile and a full guidance interview to present the findings to you and your child.
CV and e: portfolios
Rarely do you get a second chance to make a first impression, so give your child every chance to make the right first impression. The traditional CV is still widely used, but many youngsters do not give it the attention it deserves and waste both their time as well as the employer’s. In addition, some employers now prefer an e: portfolio to create more of a holistic picture of an applicant, as well as their ICT capabilities. With services available from just £49.50, give your child the hints and tips they need to stand out from the crowd.
Making the most of social media
This service will encourage your child to engage in social media to actively market their ‘personal brand’ (themselves) and to draw employer’s attention to their brand to get themselves noticed or head hunted. The cost is £49.50 for an hour of consultancy.
