One to One Coaching, Training & Work Placement

One to One Coaching

The Career Coach will meet with each participant to develop their own career progression plan.  They will get direction on their career and the type of job they want.  They will then find the sources of jobs in the market place.  The Career Coach will assist them to develop the skills to get selected.  Finally they will develop techniques to manage change and stress ie managing yourself.  This module will provide each participant with 2 one to one sessions with the Career Coach and ongoing online support for their career development.
