GROW Workshops – Taster Sessions

When you sign up to the GROW support you’ll get access to the regular GROW workshops. With workshops on GROWing your confidence; motivation; learning; CV writing; job searching skills; job applications; interview skills; and managing money skills – there’s a workshop to suit everyone’s needs.

At the moment the workshops are on Zoom – but we’re planning getting back to face to face delivery when we know we can do this safely.

We’re running Taster sessions of our GROW Workshops in May and June 2021.   See below for more information.
