OBJECTIVES

This programme focused on female students currently studying at Liverpool John Moore’s University, and worked with them, analysing  reasons why  they felt they wouldn’t succeed in their chosen field, barriers to their success, and specific employment hurdles.

 

 Using our Employable Me Programme, we then raised aspiration and self awareness by introducing mindset strategies and  improving personal skills. The pilot was successful and is rolling out in the new term to students who are in the Health and Social Faculty as part of the degree programme.

 

The programme consisted of a series of workshops and 121 mentoring and the content was based around the following :

 

Core Programme Principles to enable our learners to fully understand their:

·         Transferable skills for employment

·         Qualities and Strengths that can support their employment

·         Mindsets and how they impact on their decisions

·          Beliefs and how they limit what they are capable of achieving

·         Fears of Failing – their hurdles , labels and how to overcome them

·         Strategies for being more courageous and confident and ultimately more employable

·         Wellbeing - How to take control of their work/life balance and remain in control once employed, to deal with anxieties, stress and conflict in a positive way.

·         Strategies for taking responsibility and ownership for their choices and decisions to be A Better Me
