The Unexpected, our new pre-employability course designed to help prepare learners to take on a new role in the Kickstart Scheme.

Carefully designed for 19-24 year-olds, this innovative course takes learners on an unexpected journey to gain the skills, confidence and knowledge to be the hero of their own careers.

In this interactive game-like experience, learners take on the role of an HR intern retained by the mayor of London to recruit the best (possible) team of superheroes to save the City. Throughout their quest, learners will explore the inner workings of recruitment and develop skills to set themselves up for a successful job placement. 



Inspiration to Soar ????

Aside from acquiring relevant job searching skills, learners will gain the inspiration and confidence to take their careers to the next level.

With 1-to-1 support throughout the course, guided career advice, and hands-on job application assistance, this course will put learners on the fast-track to a super new career. ????????

The Chance to Kickstart a New Career

Designed specifically to prepare learners for the Kickstart scheme, The Unexpected is the perfect opportunity for learners to navigate the unknown aspects of job searching and acquire the skills to take on one of the many open opportunities with a Kickstart employer.

The Head 2 Work project is offered to young people living in the Boroughs of Croydon, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Kingston


Head 2 Work is a social action and employability programme offered to young individuals between the ages of 18-24 (not in education, employment or training), who are currently looking for the opportunity to work in teams designing and delivering social action projects within their own communities. This will be building on their skills and confidence with the aim to get them back into education, employment or training. The project will provide them with a tailored personal plan establishing their individual needs. In that regard, we seek to work with them in a structured but fun manner, providing the skills to support them (including but not limited to completing application forms; CV and resume writing; coaching and mentoring).  

Social actions are designed to benefit the community, must be led by young people, must be challenging and they must offer progression for the young person participating. 

Some examples of social action: 

  • Upgrading local community and hospital green spaces
  • Community radio  
  • Assisting with a tapestry highlighting Covid-19 
  • Bargain hunt style upcycling challenges  
  • Creating video and social media content 
  • Dragons den type scenarios where young people can create their own social actions

 We are currently working with a group of young people in our recording studio creating a short video and soundtrack to highlight how Covid has affected young people. This is proving to be a great way for our young people to gain experience working with experts in this field and express themselves.  

You may ask why you want to use this service or what is great about this service? We are experienced professionals who are excellent at what we do to help young people get into work. As a charity we offer this with no fees, yes you read that correctly this is a FREE service!

Please take a look on our website below to read more information on what we do.

We are also open to hear from young people to see what they would like to do and we will do our best to facilitate it.
