What is the Reach programme?
The programme lasts for 8 weeks and will cover subjects like communication skills, personal statements, success profiles, interview skills, mock interviews and much more. Time commitment will be a maximum of 2 hours a week.
It also encourages staff to look at opportunities both inside and outside of their own departments by introducing networking and giving them the skills and knowledge that will assist them in a successful career development.
A previous Reach delegate said:
The programme opened my eyes to new possibilities and career options I hadn’t considered before, setting me up with a cross government mentor working in policy. It was great to have that insight into another department. REACH then connected me with the Policy Pathway Programme which I am now delighted to be working on. I am learning all the time and developing skills that I wouldn’t get to do in my day job.I never thought this would be possible a few months ago. I can’t thank REACH enough for this amazing development opportunity.
