Event description

Description

Reviewing your career direction or looking for a job? Join our ‘Inspiring Success’ programme of free workshops and talks designed to help you take a step into a graduate career.

Inspiring Success is a two-part initiative, designed to provide employability support and funding for unemployed or underemployed graduates from the East London Growth Boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

Now in its fourth year, the initiative has supported over 70 unemployed or under-employed graduates from across the boroughs, and has already seen six individuals graduate with postgraduate qualifications from Loughborough University London. The Inspiring Success programme is delivered in partnership with the London Legacy Development Corporation and includes a series of workshops and master classes for individuals to identify their strengths, reflect on their experiences and clarify the steps needed to reach their future career goals.

Funded by Loughborough University London and the London Legacy Development Corporation, the workshops will cover topics such as positive thinking and the significance of mindset and resilience when job hunting or moving towards a future career goal. At the end of the programme, participants can choose to be considered for a 100% scholarship for a master's programme of their choice at Loughborough University London

As part of the programme, participants will spend time reflecting on their successes and strengths and also take part in a practical networking exercise with real employers. All participants will have access to a careers professional and a business advisor, for personalised guidance and support during the programme.

To apply for the programme, you must meet the following criteria:
  • Be a graduate with a minimum of a lower second class honours degree from a UK university or equivalent overseas qualification recognised by Loughborough University. Participants will need to have graduated at least 6 months prior to the start of the programme
  • Be currently residing in, and have previously taken GCSE or A level qualifications whilst residing in Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets or Waltham Forest
  • Be currently unemployed or underemployed, earning below £570.90 per week

Signing up to the Programme requires attendance at all 6 sessions.
