One of our high impact employability and work readiness programmes for secondary schools aptly called JOB POD is designed to innovatively support pupils to develop ‘real life and hands on’ employability skills to prepare them for the world of work. The JOBPOD can cater to groups of 8-10 pupils run over single sessions on PSE Days or a series of sessions over 4 weeks or 8 weeks as part of a PDG / Core Funded programme.

The team who run the JOB POD have a passion for helping young people realise their potential by working with them to show them how to:-

  • Prepare a career capsule profile
  • Research careers and develop a Career Action Plan
  • Register with Job Sites
  • Job Search
  • Develop a basic CV or Digital Video CV (available on 4-8 week programmes only)
  • Complete a job application
  • Develop interview skills

The POD comprises of 8 Ipads and a digital kit that can be brought into any educational environment or can run in an external setting.

The JOB POD sessions can be delivered across Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Powys, NPT and Swansea.

Young people can benefit greatly from ‘real life’ industry exposure and experiences. Industry experiences are beneficial for pupils who excel or maybe do not excel in traditional curriculum subjects.

Our STEP INTO INDUSTRY programmes offers secondary schools pupils aged 11+ access to a range of ‘work taster experiences’ and exposure experiences in coordinated work focused activities in vocational subject areas such as construction, professional services, creative & media, STEM, tourism and hospitality.

We realise not all schools have the resources onsite or to hand so our STEP INTO INDUSTRY programmes can be delivered over sessions spanning 4-8 weeks.

For example our STEP INTO INDUSTRY creative and media programme delivered over 8 weeks offers pupils the opportunity to learn and develop Web Development skills, Branding & Marketing Skills in a ‘real world’ context by visiting Web & Media Agencies, working offsite and at the same time achieving a City & Guilds Level 2 Digital / Marketing Qualification.

We can STEP INTO INDUSTRY programmes in most subject areas across Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Powys, NPT and Swansea.
