2021 marks the third year Connect Three will be involved in Career Ready Scotland mentoring scheme. This year's programme launches on Monday and it aims to help progress young people (S5/S6 students) to positive post school destinations by equipping them with the skills necessary and giving them access to a support network.
Throughout the programme we work on developing skills that the students have identified as improvement areas, as well as abilities that we can give them experience in to help add to their repertoire. After a series of coaching, masterclasses and potentially workplace visits, the programme is finished with a four week paid internship where the students can experience first-hand what it is like to work at Connect Three.
This is a hugely rewarding programme for both the students and for myself, I believe that it is extremely important that opportunities such as these are offered to young people to help provide them with the skills and experience they otherwise may not have access to.
