Positive Participation and HeadStart Free 2-day Work Experience Programme

As part of the HeadStart Summer Programme for 10-16 year olds in HeadStart target areas, HeadStart have teamed up with Positive Participation to offer a 2-day work experience programme, running from the Bob Jones Community Hub in Bromley St.

This is a unique opportunity for young people and their parents/carers to get a work experience certificate to present at high school, to employers, colleges or universities, to improve future employment prospects and career progression. Young people will work together, with professional support, to plan and lead an Open Day Event to launch the new HeadStart Base for the All Saints, Blakenhall, Parkfields and Ettingshall area. They will use their creative and organisational skills to showcase facilities and programmes in their local community!

The planning session will take place on Wednesday 16th August, with the Open Day itself on Saturday 9th September.
