Event description picture

WHO: Young people aged 16-30 who are motivated and ready to work!

WHEN: Thursday 18th February (Taster Day); Wednesday 24th - Friday 26th February (the main course, including interviews. You must participate on all days).

WHERE: Take part remotely from home using your phone or computer!

STEP 1 - GET READY

Once you sign up, we will send you our online workbook to help you learn about the Health and Social Care Sector and get ready for interviews. The week before, we will share our Jobs Pack with information on all the roles available - you should read this and use it to prepare!

On Thursday 18th February, we will invite you to a 'Taster Day', a two-hour introductory meeting, where we will:

  • introduce the team
  • talk you through the course plan
  • give more details on the jobs in our Jobs Pack
  • give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

STEP 2 - GET HIRED

On 24th to 25th February, we will run pre-interview online sessions which you must attend. In these sessions, you will learn how to use Teams/Zoom for video and telephone interviews, improve your interview technique and practice selling yourself to an employer.

On 26th February, you will have up to three 10-minute video interviews with different care employers recruiting for entry-level positions.

The following day, we will call you to let you know whether any of the employers wish to progress with your application. Even if you have not been selected, you will get feedback from every interview to help you improve!

STEP 3 - YOUR CAREER

We will continue to support you in all your applications. You will also have access to a dedicated Prince's Trust employability contact to coach you on your journey to employment for up to 6 months.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE WILL CALL YOU TO CONFIRM YOUR PARTICIPATION, SO MAKE SURE YOU ANSWER YOUR PHONE!
