It has been wonderful to welcome our Future Finders students to their new home! Our senior job coach Anne-Marie has all their latest news..

Well, we are back!!!! It has been a strange couple of months away and now we are all back and for the majority of our students, they have come back into the classroom and just got on with it, it’s like they have never been away. The resilience of the group and their ability to adapt to the changes we have had to put in place is amazing!

They have all said, “It is a little bit strange to be back but it is great to see friends and staff again and we just get on with it and deal with whatever is thrown at us.”

As you all know, Future Finders is all about going out to our placements and getting ready for working life. At the minute this can’t happen, so we are spending more time in the classroom, focusing on our underpinning knowledge of Employability and of course English and Maths..

Over the last week we have spent the time in class working on getting back in our routines and habits of learning. We have looked at building resilience, having a good mind set and overcoming barriers to gain what we want to achieve.

We have looked at happiness and success and what they mean to people and then discussed whether or not happiness means success or does success means happiness.

Here are just a couple of ideas that the group came up with:

Next week we will be looking more at Employability, CV writing and job searching.

So that’s it from us for the time being, here’s hoping the sun stays with us over the weekend….

Have a restful and enjoyable weekend and see you all on Monday!

Anne-Marie
