Improve your job prospects with course

JOBSEEKERS are being urged to take part in a course to improve their employability.

The 12-week course run by the Kettering branch of the Prince’s Trust, starts on Monday, April 30, and will teach young people the skills they need to secure a job.

It will be held at Tresham College in Kettering and is open to anybody aged from 16 to 25 years old who is not in education or employment.

Mark Williams, who is team leader for the charity’s Kettering branch, said: “It’s a personal development course – it opens their eyes and gives them career options.

“It gets them into a more vocational environment than a classroom.

“We normally have about 20 people enrol on the course, although the first week is treated as an interview week and we will narrow it down to about 15.

“After the course we hopefully try to get them a job – we have had success with that in the past.”

There will be a drop-in session at the Corn Market Hall in Kettering from 10am to 2pm on Thursday, April 26, for people to find out more about the course or to book a place.

Alternatively, anybody who cannot make the drop-in session can call Mr Williams on 07795 395934 to arrange an interview.
