prince's trust met police

Our senior consultant and career coach Audrey Cairo recently put on a workshop for a Prince's Trust Programme, which is being run by the Metropolitan Police in Camden.

 The 'Trust Team Programme' is a 12 week personal development course for unemployed 16-25 year olds, designed to provide an opportunity to gain new skills to help with the search for employment.

 Camden Police are delivering the programme from Kentish Town police station, where they also hoped to provide an opportunity to break down barriers between young people and the police.

 Audrey's workshop 'What's Next' was a half day of activities which covering a mix of job-finding tips along with some coaching.

 This included answers to questions like: 'What makes a good CV and cover letter?' and 'What to do (and to avoid) in an interview?'

They also looked at how to they could make the most of the transferrable skills they gained during their community project and work placements on the course.

We're proud of Audrey for the great work she put in for the programme, and are hoping that the advice she gave will go on to make a difference!
