LifeSkills created with Barclays in Bury is part of Barclays Thriving Local Economies (TLE) initiative, in which Barclays partners with local communities as part of a wider sustainable business strategy to ensure continued development in the area.
This programme is a six session mentoring programme designed for specific groups of Year 10 students from across a number of Bury secondary schools. The facilitated sessions will see students working with Barclays mentors, developing practical employability skills such as CV writing and interview techniques, whilst developing soft skills such as confidence, teamwork and improved oracy.
Each workshop will take place virtually or in an exciting location around Manchester, encouraging students to think about their core attributes and competencies and how they can find a place in the job market. The result will be to build a cohort of confident and capable students, furnished with the skills and knowledge they need to make the transition from education to the world of work.
