Price & Buckland Proudly Supports ThinkForward
Tuesday 30th October 2018
We are pleased to announce that we will be starting a new partnership with the charity ThinkForward. ThinkForward’s vision is simple – to prevent a new generation of youth unemployment. They do this through a coaching programme that provides long-term support to young people at high risk of unemployment.
The ThinkForward programme
A group of highly-skilled coaches build consistent, trusted relationships with young people through one-to-one coaching and group work sessions. Students’ progress is tracked along seven ‘ready for work’ capabilities which we believe are key in preparing them for employment. They are: Self-assurance, self-awareness, drive, receptivity, resilience and organisational and communication skills.
Brought together, these ‘soft skills’ help to equip young people for the workplace.
Crucially, ThinkForward also offers young people a range of opportunities to connect with, and get experience of, the world of work. These essential activities include business mentoring, insight days, CV writing and interview skills workshops, and work placements.
Price & Buckland will be providing business engagement opportunities to students taking part in the ThinkForward programme. One of the first initiatives that we will be supporting is Business insights. We will be hosting our first insights sessions at the end of November. This will allow students to see first hand what an office environment is like and also the many different skills found in one business.
