For My Future

Our For My Future Course aims to help overcome the barriers that people with criminal convictions face in finding work. Our tailored course comprises of 20 hours of guided learning, 1:1 mentoring and home learning, CV and interview techniques and a plan to get you into volunteering within your community. Our course is tailored to:

  • Build your confidence and self-esteem
  • Consider your decisions, motivation and self-belief
  • Handle 'Disclosure' information - hints and tips
  • Tackle CV & Interview techniques - including practice interviews
  • Consider wider opportunities available on completion of the course
  • Access additional support providers for advice on training, education, and employment

This course is designed and delivered by our Volunteer Project Manager Karen.

''When I first started the course, I couldn’t even speak on the Zoom sessions. I couldn’t name one thing that I liked about myself, but with the help of my mentor, Karen, and the course, I built my self-confidence up, my self-esteem and I actually could see a future for myself. Even though I now had a criminal record, I was shown that I could turn my life around and I did. I would of never have been able to do this without the help of this course. It really did change my life.''
