Nottinghamshire Clubs for Young People (Notts CYP) successfully applied for an ESF Community Grant to deliver employability skills to young people through their Being Ready programme. The course included CV writing, time management, money management, confidence building and form filling. Participants also complete food hygiene and first aid training.
Kirsty has a visual impairment, ADHD and is autistic.
Daily zooms and weekly individual catch ups with Notts CYP staff ensured Kirsty had regular interaction and challenges to complete. She engaged well and always completed the work set. She had sessions with the Maths tutor, with the support of Notts CYP staff, and then completing the ‘homework’ set.
