About the Event
The Prespect 8 Week Career Accelerator Course
This is an essential add on to your degree or professional skills.
Whether you are new to the employment market, new to the country, struggling to gain promotion, get a foothold in your chosen career or returning after time out and feeling a lack of confidence, we can help.
The course has online and live group sessions from career advisors in Edinburgh and Glasgow. We also offer as much 1:1 support as we can to help you overcome any barriers to your progression
What you will gain from taking this course
- The course is broken into short modules that will accumulate your knowledge, allowing you to step into the jobs market with renewed purpose and with the knowledge to get a job that isn't taught at university, school or college.
- Tips and techniques to give you the edge
- An understanding of barriers through advisors with lived experience and a range of cultural backgrounds
- Renewed confidence
