Aimed at under-represented groups, particularly A2B participants, you can gain access to a progression coach.
A progression coach is slightly different to a careers adviser in that the emphasis is not solely on offering careers advice, but more helping you look deeper into yourself, collaborating together to create ideas and move your situation on further towards a desirable outcome, which includes goal setting.
Coaching can help you realise and appreciate your strengths, to unlock your potential and inner motivation - giving you greater confidence to move forward and achieve your goals.
