Cannock Team, Safer Communities CIC

We operate Monday - Friday, from 9:00 - 16:00. We start on 19th October.

We aim to help young people aged 16-25 years who are currently out of work, education or training to progress and develop in order to unlock their potential. We start on 19th October 2020.

The Team Programme is a FREE 12-week personal development programme where the young people can gain new skills, complete an accredited qualification and meet new people. During the 12-weeks, they will be challenged to:

  • Take on their own group community project, making a positive difference to the place where they live
  • Gain work experience in something they’re interested in (geared towards being a stepping stone towards their ultimate goal)
  • Develop their English and Maths skills
  • Boost their confidence and self esteem
  • Challenge their perceptions of the world around them and help them to grow awareness and positive attitudes
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Develop employability and social integration skills

 

Whilst the young people are with us, they also work towards a national qualification which consists of seven modules outlined below:

  • Planning for personal development
  • Teamwork Skills
  • Community Project
  • Work Experience
  • Career Planning
  • Presentation Skills
  • Supporting others in the community

 

As part of the course, we also spend time developing interview skills and CV’s to ensure that their confidence is sky-high when taking their next steps, as well as six months of follow on support upon completion of the Team programme. Furthermore, we provide a breakfast club in the morning and can help with travel costs for the young people.
