NOTE: This project has now ended.
You know that feeling when you finally leave education but don’t know which career path suits you? When job adverts ask for previous experience and you just don’t have any?
My Choices project can help you bridge the gap.
My Choices gives you a unique opportunity to gain valuable volunteering and work experience placements with local organisations that you might not normally have access to. The project is open to you if you’ve recently left school or college and are currently unemployed or not in any training, set up specifically for young people who are Dorset postcode residents.
We’ll start by figuring out what really interests you, support you to find a suitable placement with a local business or charity, and you’ll be on your way to learning new employment skills directly from workplace experience.
What will you get out of it?
- Discover what you’re passionate about
- Learn practical skills that employers are seeking
- Gain new relevant experience to put on your CV
- Build your confidence in the workplace
- Earn a sense of achievement
