Support from university students
Our workshop Facilitators are university students and graduates who have been through the same journey as you building their confidence.
They'll introduce you to your employer mentors, help you find out what you're passionate about and give you supportive feedback.
The Facilitators are a really friendly group of people who can share their tips and advice, and answer any questions you have.
