Free course to boost teenage employment

A two week employment course will aim to improve the job prospects of teenagers.

The free sessions will be provided by Tresham College at its centres in Kettering and Rushden for young people aged between 16 to 18.

Held over four days a week, the course will aim to enchance teenager’s employability, by offering them workshops in CV presentation, writing application letters, and interview skills.

Guest speakers will also hold talks to discuss the world of work and how young people can increase their chance of employment.

The course will start from Monday, July 23, at the Kettering campus in Windmill avenue, for two weeks during Mondays to Thursdays.

It will then be held at Rushden’s Eaton Walk centre from Monday, August 13, for two weeks during Mondays to Thursdays.

The speakers will be based in Northampton but travel is paid for to enable young people to attend the sessions at The Gateway Centre, Semilong, Northampton from 9am till 3pm Monday to Thursday.
