Brentford FC Community Sports Trust is running an eight day employability programme to assist young people aged 16-18 to gain further knowledge and skills to help them navigate their next steps and journey into either education, training or employment.

The Summer Start Up programme includes a range of qualifications in peer mentoring, Sport leaders and employability while completing short courses in talent identification, Safeguarding and CPR.

The programme also includes workshops on increasing self-esteem and self-confidence, providing vital strategies to help make the transition in September both enjoyable and productive. On completion of the programme a reference and support opportunities will be provided for the next steps.

The course will run in two sessions, these first run from 26 to 29 July and week two 3 to 6 August at West Thames College, Isleworth from to 10am to 4pm each day.
