YOUNG CARERS HAVE AN EXTRAORDINARY SET OF SKILLS AND THEY CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING THEY SET THEIR MINDS TO
MYTIME’s Employability Programme supports young adult carers of ages 16-25 into further education, training or employment. This gives them the confidence, skills and support they deserve for the next steps of their career.
MYTIME’s Employability Programme can help young carers develop key skills and career opportunities.
During the 8-week course, you will learn to:
recognise the value of the skills you have developed as a carer | explore career opportunities that might interest you | build a plan for the future | produce a professional cv | develop your interview skills | identify opportunities for work experience | understand your core identity and strengths | Feel more confident in yourself
“Because of the Employability Programme I now have a great CV that represents me, I know how to tackle difficult interview questions and I have gained so much confidence in myself”
“As a young carer you often feel alone in your situation, this is definitely not the case since I have been doing this programme, I have had a great time and met some lovely people”
“I learned a lot about how to answer tricky interview questions that could be thrown as curveballs”
“I would definitely recommend the employability course to another young carer because of the confidence that I have gained”
