The pandemic has hit young women hard in terms of job opportunities. Branching Out provides funded, employment skills courses for young women.

  • Explore your options
  • Develop communication skills to help you with employment, self-employment and further education
  • Build your confidence
  • Build your network
  • Prepare your CV
  • Develop job application and interview skills

At the end of the course, you will be given a mentor to help you stay on track with your plans for the following 12 months.
