The next discovery session will equip you with the techniques you need to share your employability skills with schools, colleges and vulnerable groups as a Civil Service volunteer. The overall aim is to enable citizens who attend our employment workshops to be in a better position to apply for jobs.
This session will cover teamwork, making a positive first impression, transferable skills and active listening. The modules are fun and highly interactive, having a mixture of listening and group activities, with the workshop taking just under 3 hours. A series of 'train the trainer workshops' on employability skills has been successfully held over the summer to enable civil servants to volunteer and work with people in places where they live or work.
When: Monday 9 November 2015
Where: Press Light Well, G/12, 1 Horse Guards Road, London, SW1A 2HQ
Time: 10.30am to 1pm or 1.30pm to 4pm

This training will enable volunteers to support employability workshops in the community and possibly lead them.
Volunteering not only allows civil servants to help their local communities, but enables you to develop new skills to support you in your own jobs. The 'train the trainers' workshop will help volunteers to reflect on their own job roles, pick up new tips on interviews and applications and build up new contacts in other departments.
You will need your line manager’s approval to attend this event and travel and subsistence costs must be met by your home department. Lunch will not be provided, so please make alternative arrangements.
Civil Service Local is committed to ensuring that wherever possible our events are accessible to all participants. If you have any specific requirements that will enable you to fully participate, please let me know and we will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustments.
