How does it work?: This FREE programme is split into 4 key elements:

• Skills sessions - These are much more practical workshops focusing on things like personal branding, networking, media training and public speaking.

• Coaching & Mentoring - You will have the opportunity to be matched with a coach and a mentor who can help you with your personal and career goals.
