Bee Awesome!

What is Bee Awesome

Bee Awesome is a 2-week course for young people aged 16-24, who, for whatever reason, did not finish or cope at school. This includes disabilities and neuro diversity.

Week 1 is a personal development using the Ignition! Programme. This is a 12-step journey of fun and discovery which leads into week 2, which is employment.

In week 2, local employers and entrepreneurs will be available to answer questions and give more information on the world of work. The skills and knowledge from week 1 will be used to improve CV’s and interviewing skills and much more.

Learning does not have to be done at a desk or in front of a screen, it can be done through games, videos, competitions and getting out and talking to people.

At the end of the course, individuals are assigned to mentors, who will be entrepreneurs or employers. This is to encourage and support for up to 6 months to get into paid work, education or training.
