What has been happening so far?
We are excited to announce that Supported Internships in Swale have gotten off to a fantastic start! We are working with 4 young people who are achieving and progressing brilliantly. We have set up bespoke workplacements with local, forward thinking employers that really fit with the interests and aspirations of the young people. We will be posting regular updates on achievements, the employers we work with and other exciting news - keep visiting this page to see the latest!
We are also thrilled to be expanding into Medway and will be supporting 8 young people starting in September 2017!
We are taking referrals now for September 2017 for both Swale and Medway - so please look at the Support Agencies page for referral information or if you want some more information from us.
We are hosting an OPEN DAY for the Medway programme on the 8th February! It is a great opportunity to come along and meet our teacher, work coaches, Jobs Champion and young people and get more of a feel of the programme. If you are interested in coming, please contact Gemma Cooper on 07966 017 585 or Gemma.Cooper@skillnetgroup.co.uk for more information. We hope to see you there!
