Scale-up to career success…
To deliver the ‘Scale Up’ programme, B-Skill have been working with Gary Bell, Cluster Manager at JCP Sefton. ‘Scale Up’ provides training in areas that will ensure individuals are up-to-date with the current economic climate when it comes to recruitment. They will participate in CV writing workshops, learn all about self-employment and gain an understanding of the hidden job market. Individuals will also work on their own Career Campaign plan.
It’s hard for anyone to keep up with the current job market, so ‘Scale Up’ explores how things have changed since the individual last applied for a job and will include Interview Preparation and how to prepare for assessments that could be part of the recruitment process. We aim for individuals to feel prepared for what’s to come.
I would like to express my gratitude for my place on this course. The course is amazing for anyone wanting to develop their management skills and personal skills around colleagues and management. The tutor, Sean, has an amazing delivery style and is very personable in his approach as he has been where you are a few years ago. He has a high amount of patience with people and will go out of his way to help you.
The core skills that you learn have helped me to continue my management career and helped me have a further understanding of conflict management and what my management style is. I would highly recommend this course to anyone and everyone. I met some great people from all different backgrounds and walks of life, some of who I still speak to, who all encourage each other and motivate one another to further themselves and succeed.
The next Scale Up programmes will be starting on Monday 2nd July in Liverpool City Centre and Southport. If you are unemployed and need the help to secure your next job, or maybe you’re a recent Graduate looking to gain your first experience in the workplace, we’re here to help. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to say hello and a member of our team will get back to you.
I would thoroughly recommend this course and am pleased that it is a recognised certificated qualification – it shows future employers that a ‘job seeking candidate’ has been engaged in this classroom learning process, has been challenged to think about new ways of working, has discussed themes & personal work situations with others, and participated in activities to challenge themselves further if they wish.
Thank you very much to Sean for being an inspirational course leader!
My new position is Head of Operations at Key6 Group. They are an Apprenticeship provider working with Levy paying organisations – they are working with Liverpool Football Club as their main client, and my remit is to look after all aspects of their training provision.
What surprised me was that Sean, our tutor, got us to open up and communicate with each other, even though we were complete strangers at the start of the course. We talked about our depth of knowledge and what expertise we all had, and most of our future potential.
Sean motivated everyone and in many ways got people to re-programme themselves to feel good again, as most people had gone through a really negative experience when becoming unemployed. I think everyone completed ‘Scale Up’ feeling positive and with a drive to perfect their skills and take ownership of their development, which helps to secure future work.
Whilst on the course, and because of Sean’s advice, I have enrolled into the Open University/Open Learn (Social Marketing). I have also just finished my Management and Leadership course.
Overall, I would say the delivery of the programme was excellent and highlights the urgent need for such courses. Keep up the great work!
