RiseUp & ReBuild
Many long term unemployed are simply not ready to enter the workplace. Being out of work for an extended period of time, and then being asked to gain employment can be a difficult and stressful experience. It brings on anxieties, doubts and feelings of a lack of self worth.
“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future – which, of course, can only be experienced as the Now.”
At RiseUp we strongly believe that a holistic approach to skills development better prepares the individual for the workplace by building self-esteem, resilience and techniques that help them to cope when under pressure.
Our RiseUp & ReBuild programme combines life coaching and creative engagement with practical workplace skills. The aim is to prepare people to undertake job searches and give them the confidence to enter the workplace better prepared than ever before.
Delivered over 10 x 2 hour sessions to groups of up to 15, the course is compact and flexible. In addition, each participant will receive 1:1 support from an employment coach throughout the programme.
