QPR in the Community Trust has partnered with Barclays and the Premier League to deliver a free life skills and employability programme for local young people.
The course is aimed at 16-24 year olds who are not in education, employment or training, and are looking to develop their overall confidence and team-work skills as well as improve their CV, interviewing skills and employability prospects.
In order to maximise the impact of the course, participants on the programme will construct their own personal development plans with the support of a member of QPR staff.
There will be a healthy mixture of workshops and classroom-based tasks, individual and group learning, community volunteering, work experience, as well as activity days out in London.
Furthermore, there could potentially be a visit to other Premier League stadiums and Barclays’ HQ in Canary Wharf.
Participants who engage fully in the course will be given the opportunity to attend a Premier League fixture at Loftus Road and may be invited to a day of Go-Karting or Paintballing.
Should the participants complete the required amount of learning, QPR in the Community Trust - along with Barclays - will facilitate a work experience placement in the industry of the participant’s choice. The course is free and will not affect any JSA payment.
In order to be eligible for the course you must:
• be aged between 16 and 24
• not be in education, employment or training
• not be working over 16 hours a week
Everyone who registers their interest will be invited to an Open Interview Day on Thursday 4th December 2014.
