CHYPPS NEWS LETTER
Welcome to our CHYPPS fortnightly e-Newsletter
Have A Go and KickStart
Employability programmes from The Volunteer Network
Both of our programmes for helping young people to find employment will be starting new groups over the next couple of months.
Have A Go
This is a short, six week programme leading to an Award in Developing Skills for Employment.
With this project young people can take part in volunteering and training events, meet new people and with only a couple of days training and a few days volunteering can gain a qualification.
The taught part can be delivered in small groups or even one to one and once completed we will work out an individual activity programme based around the needs of each individual young person.
This programme has less commitment and more activities than KickStart and is open to all young people aged 16 – 18, even if they are in college or working.
Have A Go is run at venues in Glastonbury and Bath and the next sessions will be starting on the 10th February 2017.
KickStart is our longer, more in depth employability programme, lasting sixteen weeks and leading to a Diploma in Work Preparation and Functional Skills in Maths and English.
Once registered on the programme young people will attend a local venue for two days per week working on the qualification including subjects such as personal goal setting, developing job seeking skills and developing their confidence in the job market.
They will be able to choose from a range of supported volunteering opportunities which will include both small-scale, local activities through to volunteering at large national events including festivals and events such as the Badminton Horse Trials and the Royal Bath and West Show. Volunteering placements may be for just one day or could become a long term commitment.
KickStart is run at venues in Glastonbury and Bath and the next sessions will be starting on the 6th March 2017. The KickStart group size is limited to ten places so please book early.

British Youth Council Survey
BYC are conducting a survey to find out what young people of all ages think about their communities; whether or not they feel European; about stereotyping, bullying and hate crime; and the skills they have / need as young people today.
Their views will contribute to the UK's response and contribution to the next Structured Dialogue conference in Slovakia, where the BYC will be working with y oung people and decision makers from across the EU to create recommendations.
All young people taking part will be in with a chance of winning a £40 voucher.
