Fastlaners Youth Employability Programme 18 - 25 year olds

Fastlaners is an 8-day programme that runs across two weeks from 1st – 11th April (sessions run Monday - Thursday each week).

 

The programme consists of a combination of employability skills workshops, personal development sessions and opportunities to gain an insight into the world of work through visits to a number of London-based employers. Over the course of the programme we will have sessions on topics such as CV writing, interview skills, personal branding, networking skills, among many others.

 

We will be hosted by a different organisation each day of the programme, these will include The Civil Service, Peckham Levels, Birkbeck University and Milkround.



What happens after the programme?

 

After the end of the 8 day programme we remain committed to supporting participants into their next job and achieve this by offering the following:

 

  • Six months of one-to-one job support from the Fastlaners Programme Manager, including regular meetings/phone calls and optional drop-ins.

 

  • Opportunities to access mentoring through our speed mentoring events, or through 1:1 peer mentoring if participants are able to commit to the 6 month process.
