Talent Coaches' perspective - how employers can help young people find their feet at work

 Registration is closed for this event
Talent Coaches provide one-to-one employability support to young people on GM's Hidden Talent. This online event (via Zoom), is designed for employers and is an opportunity to listen to our Talent Coaches' reflections on what kind of guidance and information young people need to make a successful start in new roles. There will also be the chance to share your own good practice and put questions to our Talent Coaches and other attending employers.

Our Talent Coaches would be the first to admit that induction / probation periods are two-way streets. Ultimately, young people need to create a good impression by showing dedication and professionalism. There are though, simple actions employers can make to give young people every chance to shine.

The world of work can be a confusing place for young people with limited or no experience of the workplace. Implicit rules and behaviours may not be obvious unless explained, and processes / systems for holidays, sickness, pay etc. can be misunderstood, leading to issues that could easily have been avoided.

Our Talent Coaches have many years' experience of providing in-work support to young people and will explain how to make all of the above clear to young people. 

Recognising that not all young people arrive with a support worker in the background, this event will leave employers with simple advice that they can build into their inductions with new young starters.
