A new addition to our skills development resource
We’re really pleased to welcome Alison, a new Development and Skills Officer to the HeadsUp team. This means that we now have 3 members of staff dedicated to working with our participants on practical job seeking skills.
A little introduction
Hi, I am Alison and I’m new to the team. My background is supporting people to use the internet, running digital online workshops and I.T. group sessions, so I feel right at home with the I.T. skill pods HeadsUp can offer!
I love how HeadsUp supports participants in getting back into work or training, and my previous teaching experience will help me offer this too. I can provide advice, support and encouragement to participants whether it be creating a CV, to interview skills such as preparing for questions, right through to supporting them on their first day at work. It’s a dream job for me to be able to see a person grow in confidence and take that leap of faith on the HeadsUp project.
