Unique employability support for schools

Supporting pupils to successfully compete for jobs.

Following a long standing relationship with Lochgelly High School in Fife, we now partner a number of high schools through delivery of our Hand Picked for Schools provision. 

We bring together like-minded businesses to deliver employability workshops to school pupils in a classroom enviroment. Pupils have the chance to learn about companies and jobs but more importantly they gain inside knowledge about what employers really look for when they recruit new staff. The programme is flexible and can be delivered over six single school periods or three double periods.

The workshops are entirely focussed around marketing and selling yourself effectively to an employer and includes:

  • Understanding and practicing cover letters, emails and tailoring applications 
  • Creating a successful CV using tailoring techniques
  • What to expect at interviews including first impressions, interview questions and competency

Due to the pandemic, the programme can be delivered in two ways - by teachers in class with virtual input from employers or if you have robust risk assessments in place, we may still be able to engage employers in classroom delivery. This is decided on a case by case basis.

We provide full training to employers/teachers, lesson plans with delivery guidance and pupil workbooks to accompany the course.
