Our Training Programme

Our Circle Community training programme is specifically tailored to the needs of our participants, offering practical based training rather than academic learning. Circle Collective’s Training is designed to assist, inspire and motivate unemployed young people to create better lives for themselves by providing coaching, mentoring and training.

Our Circle Get Employed training course caters for 16-24 year olds, supporting them to develop crucial life skills, build their confidence and motivation, to help them into employment. Working individually and as part of a team they take on various challenges and experience new things that will allow them to build an enhanced CV and cover letter.

All trainees gain valuable work experience in a real working environment, which enables our trainees to put the workplace skills they learn into practice. The trainees all gain vital experience in customer service, personal finance, career planning, expectations in the work place, business administration, marketing and retail. Having experience is extremely desirable to potential employers, who cannot afford the time or resources to train inexperienced employees, meaning our services provide young people with a significant advantage when competing in the job market.

We hold regular workshops facilitated by our corporate partners giving our trainees exposure to major employers including Land Securities and John Lewis. This provides opportunities for mock interviews, role play and has a focus on the work behind the scenes of customer service business. These sessions allow our trainees to learn more about the different opportunities available to them and put their new skills to the test outside of the Circle Collective environment.

By March 2017, 76% of all the young people who completed our training programme, have successfully moved into permanent employment. With our support, more than 200 previously unemployed young people are now working in a range of positions with companies such as Primark, Esprit, William Hill and SuperDry, as well as in Digital, Technology and Business Administration roles with Channel 4 and the Ministry of Justice.
