how does it work?

The programme takes place over 2-3 months with a follow up workshop after 6 months. There are 4 workshops of between 2-2.5 hours, several one on ones all supported with on demand elearning content.

The programme takes you through the 4 steps outlined below. During the 'explore' phase we introduce you to experts and other members doing work you'd like to learn more about.  Where it's appropriate we can also help organise job shadowing and work experience opportunities.

Our core programme is supported by our wider community of people, events and meetings. Whether looking for a new role, wanting to make changes to your current job, building your own business or portfolio career there is almost no area where we can't pull on our wider resources to give you the targeted and personal support you need.
